Into the Mist, Volume 1 depicts men and women in extreme situations, struggling to survive against brutal and often lethal adversity.

The book’s 13 chapters relive a hiker’s lonely death from hypothermia, the first fatal bear mauling in park history, a massive and successful rescue operation by park rangers, killers at large in the park, lightning strikes on the Appalachian Trail and other true and harrowing incidents. Includes a comprehensive appendix of all known fatalities that occurred in the park between 1931 and 2013 and lists the park’s leading causes of death and most dangerous places. *Shipping cost is driven by weight and address, and allows you to ship multiple titles for about the same cost as one book.
