Dios, los mormones y el fanatismo religioso Jon Krakauer s literary reputation rests on insightful chronicles of lives conducted at the outer limits He now shifts his focus from extremes of physical adventure to extremes of religious belief within our own borders taking readers inside isolated American communities where some Mormon Fundamentalists still practice polygamy Defying both civil authorities and the Mormon establishment in Salt Lake City the renegade leaders of these Taliban like theocracies are zealots who answer only to God .

At the core of Krakauer s book are brothers Ron and Dan Lafferty who insist they received a commandment from God to kill a blameless woman and her baby girl Beginning with a meticulously researched account of this appalling double murder Krakauer constructs a multi layered bone chilling narrative of messianic delusion polygamy savage violence and unyielding faith Along the way he uncovers a shadowy offshoot of America s fastest growing religion and raises provocative questions about the nature of religious belief by Jon Krakauer

Missoula Montana is a typical college town home to a highly regarded state university whose beloved football team inspires a passionately loyal fan base Between January and May hundreds of students reported sexual assaults to the local police Few of the cases were properly handled by either the university or local authorities In this Missoula is also typical br br In these pages acclaimed journalist Jon Krakauer investigates a spate of campus rapes that occurred in Missoula over a four year period Taking the town as a case study for a crime that is sadly prevalent throughout the nation Krakauer documents the experiences of five victims their fear and self doubt in the aftermath the skepticism directed at them by police prosecutors and the public their bravery in pushing forward and what it cost them These stories cut through abstract ideological debate about acquaintance rape to demonstrate that it does not happen because women are sending mixed signals or seeking attention They are victims of a terrible crime deserving of fairness from our justice system Rigorously researched rendered in incisive prose i Missoula i stands as an essential call to action br br, b The bestselling author of i Into the Wild i i Into Thin Air i and i Under the Banner of Heaven i delivers a stunning eloquent account of a remarkable young man s haunting journey b br br Like the men whose epic stories Jon Krakauer has told in his previous bestsellers Pat Tillman was an irrepressible individualist and iconoclast In May Tillman walked away from his million NFL contract to enlist in the United States Army He was deeply troubled by and he felt a strong moral obligation to join the fight against al Qaeda and the Taliban Two years later he died on a desolate hillside in southeastern Afghanistan br br Though obvious to most of the two dozen soldiers on the scene that a ranger in Tillman s own platoon had fired the fatal shots the Army aggressively maneuvered to keep this information from Tillman s wife other family members and the American public for five weeks following his death During this time President Bush repeatedly invoked Tillman s name to promote his administration s foreign policy Long after Tillman s nationally televised memorial service the Army grudgingly notified his closest relatives that he had probably been killed by friendly fire while it continued to dissemble about the details of his death and who was responsible br br In i Where Men Win Glory i Jon Krakauer draws on Tillman s journals and letters interviews with his wife and friends conversations with the soldiers who served alongside him and extensive research on the ground in Afghanistan to render an intricate mosaic of this driven complex and uncommonly compelling figure as well as the definitive account of the events and actions that led to his death Before he enlisted in the army Tillman was familiar to sports aficionados as an undersized overachieving Arizona Cardinals safety whose virtuosity in the defensive backfield was spellbinding With his shoulder length hair outspoken views and boundless intellectual curiosity Tillman was considered a maverick America was fascinated when he traded the bright lights and riches of the NFL for boot camp and a buzz cut Sent first to Iraq a war he would openly declare was illegal as hell and eventually to Afghanistan Tillman was driven by complicated emotionally charged sometimes contradictory notions of duty honor justice patriotism and masculine pride and he was determined to serve his entire three year commitment But on April his life would end in a barrage of bullets fired by his fellow soldiers br br Krakauer chronicles Tillman s riveting tragic odyssey in engrossing detail highlighting his remarkable character and personality while closely examining the murky heartbreaking circumstances of his death Infused with the power and authenticity readers have come to expect from Krakauer s storytelling i Where Men Win Glory i exposes shattering truths about men and war br i From the inside cover of ISBN i, Greg Mortenson has built a global reputation as a selfless humanitarian and children s crusader and he s been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize He is also not what he appears to be As acclaimed author Jon Krakauer discovered Mortenson has not only fabricated substantial parts of his bestselling books i Three Cups of Tea i and i Stones into Schools i but has also misused millions of dollars donated by unsuspecting admirers like Krakauer himself br br This is the tragic tale of good intentions gone very wrong, In a story of Everest unlike any told before Jamling Tenzing Norgay gives us an insider s view of the Sherpa world As Climbing Leader of the famed Everest IMAX expedition led by David Breashears Jamling Norgay was able to follow in the footsteps of his legendary mountaineer father Tenzing Norgay who with Sir Edmund Hillary was the first to reach the summit of Mount Everest in Jamling Norgay interweaves the story of his own ascent during the infamous May Mount Everest disaster with little known stories from his father s historic climb and the spiritual life of the Sherpas revealing a fascinating and profound world that few even many who have made it to the top have ever seen
