Jennifer Jordan Tells Untold Story of Ill-fated 1939 Mountaineering Expedition

This week I met award-winning author, filmmaker, and screenwriter Jennifer Jordan. She was in Arizona talking her book “The Last Man on the Mountain: The Death of an American Adventurer on K2”. It’s an amazing story about Dudley Wolfe, the first man to climb K2, the world’s second-highest mountain.

After making it higher than any member of the expedition, a sick and severely dehydrated Wolfe was abandoned during the descent. Sixty-three years later, Jennifer Jordan discovered his remains.
