Holding Fast

Karen James' book, Holding Fast: The Untold Story of the Mount Hood Tragedy, tells the story of the crisis on Mount Hood in which her husband Kelly (Frank's brother) and his two climbing partners, Brian Hall and Nikko Cook, lost their lives.

In the book, Karen tells the story of her relationship with Kelly, their shared faith in God, and her personal journey with grief. She also employs her expertise as an investigative reporter in her search for answers of what went wrong. Her conclusions are endorsed by search and rescue experts who were involved in the search.

Saturday, November 15, on the Today Show, Lester Holt interviewed Karen about her book.

Kelly helped get me started climbing,he always had good advice and was very helpful. I am progressing very good as a intermediate Mountaineer, thanks in part to Kellys coaching. Thank you for this post and just know there are probably many more rookies like me that Kelly inspired, and made a positive effect in their life.
