An amazing ordeal of survival at extreme altitude and showcase of human strength of a person, who decided to “Not to Die”.

A first-person account from a climber who almost died on Everest during the 2006 climbing season. After collapsing and being abandoned by his teammates, who thought he was dead, Hall was found alive the next morning and eventually made it safely down from the mountain. His account of the night he spent slipping in and out of reality in the death zone is harrowing, but gripping.
