The Real-Life Survivor Behind Everest's Harrowing True Story

17 September 2015 5:15 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Everest recounts the real-life story of the May 10, 1996 trek to the top of the world's highest peak - a day that would become the deadliest in its history. (That record has sadly since been surpassed.) The movie is based on climber and survivor Beck Weathers's memoir, Left For Dead: My Journey Home From Everest, but most people are more familiar with another book about the fateful expedition: journalist Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild. The film, while epic and frightening - especially when captured in expansive IMAX 3D - still somehow doesn't compare to the real human drama - which, in my opinion, these two books better harness. Read on for more of the true story of Weathers' incredible survival and to find out about his life after Everest. Weathers and Brolin at the La premiere of Everest in Sept. Weathers, now 68, is played by Josh Brolin in the film. »
