Its taken from a quote from the following book...
Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster (Paperback)
by Jon Krakauer

Excellent. I enjoy Krakauer's writing very much and all of his books have been rather gripping.

Just curious if this might have another Digi-pack case, and artwork by a certain British artist? =p

Even people not impressed by TIS's music LOVED the case and artwork.

We're not ready to reveal the art just yet, though the cover is actually done. But it won't be Roger, rather a very cool photographer from Poland.

I just put a copy on hold at the library.Can't wait to read it.It sounds very inspiring,and to hear Steve talk personally about it today proved it had a major impact on his life!

Read the book in less than a week! Very good!It has several great quotes and ideas that will work well when expounded upon on the album. My question is:Is this the first and onlly rock album lyrically centered around mountain-climbing?If not what is or was? it's the only one I can think off-except for the song SSOTS of course-but the only CONCEPT album built around it I can think off. What a great un-tapped resource. The book is really pretty easy reading-just kinda hard to keep up with alot of the characters(different climbers,different expeditions,groups at the same time in '96)Very gut-wrenching at times.I most of all came away with an awe and mystery about what really motivates these people to do this(some over and over)-esp. when they never do make it to the top, and when they pass dead bodies along the way. I get the sense that it sure wasn't worth it to the author!
