One Pair of Hands Monica Dickens. Jeff Babcock has lived most of his adult life in Alaska—the Last Frontier. Should I Not Return is based upon real events during a controversial climbing tragedy and rescue attempt by Jeff and his older brother, Bill, to find seven missing climbers from the ill-fated Joseph Wilcox Expedition.
Jeff and Bill went on to oversee the outdoor mountaineering program at the University of Alaska Anchorage. For nearly 30 years, they introduced countless students to the joys of mountain climbing, with numerous expeditions to Denali, its surrounding peaks, and mountains in Mexico and South America.
Jeff and his wife, Margaret, raised four children in Alaska. What set their climb apart from those before it, and even those afterward, was a disaster of such magnitude that it became know as North America's worst mountaineering tragedy. As published you find yourself reading what can best be described as a "train of thought" narrative. Whenever it strikes the author -- even in the middle of a key part of the climbing The author chose to do a couple of unusual things. Whenever it strikes the author -- even in the middle of a key part of the climbing narrative -- he breaks away to relate some totally unrelated detail from the lives of the key people he is writing about.
This jumping around gets frustrating, with much of the personal stories being totally unnecessary.
Should I Not Return
Babcock writes well and provides excellent historical detail about the climbing history of the Denali. He also includes first-rate photographs supplemented with route additions that give one a very clear picture of the challenges posed by this mountain.
As you read this, you eventually succumb to simply tolerating the poor editing while appreciating the excellent information provided. Sep 21, Donna Mack rated it really liked it.
A real page turner. Not only a book about conquering the mountain, but a personal coming of age tale of entanglements between two climber brothers and the greater family they share.

Babcock balances the tension between his personal struggles and the challenges of climbing the highest and perhaps the most difficult mountain on the continent, along with the historical climbs of those that went before, some surviving, some not. Along with breathtaking descriptions of the ice, wind, and snow of Mt. Denali, the author shares details about the effects of high altitude on the fragile human body both living and dead.
Should I Not Return by Jeffrey Babcock
The reader is astonished to learn how impossible it is to get identification from a corpse whose body and clothing are frozen solid as stone. This is more than a book about struggling with the Mountain. Jul 27, Jimkinscherffhotmail. Com rated it it was amazing. I enjoy books and movies based on true stories and even though the author has changed some of the names and timing it is very entertaining.
