      Robert Craig was part of the two most wrenching yet incredible mountaineering stories ever told, both tragedies limned with acts of courage. They led to his authorship and his co-authorship of the classic mountaineering tomes, Storm and Sorrow in the Pamirs, and K2: The Savage Mountain. A lifelong climber and skier, Craig, 90, of Keystone, Colorado, fell ill with pneumonia in December and died. Get this from a library! Storm and sorrow. [Richard Colla; Lori Singer; Tod Allen; Steven Anderson, actor.; Robert W Craig; Kreative Digital Entertainment (Firm); Hearst Entertainment Productions.;] -- True-life story of rock climber Molly Higgins who joined an international mountain-climbing expedition in the USSR in , which ended in tragedy.
