NEW YORK, Dec. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In its first year of publication, After The Wind: Tragedy on Everest - One Survivor's Story, Lou Kasischke's riveting tale of survival on the disastrous 1996 Mount Everest expedition, has received interest from five foreign publishers for publication abroad: China, Greece, Spain, Korea, and the UK.
At the same time, After The Wind, in both the hardcover and paperback editions, has been rushed back to press for more copies to meet holiday sales demand in the United States.
On the heels of other rave reviews, the Midwest Book Review just proclaimed: "Kasischke's miraculous account of survival is paired with the love story of his connection with his wife Sandy. Intense and profound, After The Wind is highly recommended."
Kasischke, consultant to the blockbuster film Everest and a retired lawyer and a venture capital advisor, commented, "I am so pleased that my book has received such wonderful attention here and abroad. I wrote this book sixteen years ago, but put it away, and why I chose to publish it now is part of the larger story the reader will find in After The Wind."
A new Conversation With the Author and Discussion Questions For Book Groups at the back of the paperback add to the book's appeal as a gift for outdoors, adventure, climbing, and sports readers, as well as to members of reading groups. After The Wind is featured in 6 million holiday catalogs being distributed by over 2,000 bookstores across the country this month.
After The Wind has received six book awards, including the Winner of the National Excellence Book Award for Memoir and Adventure and the Gold Medal: Benjamin Franklin Book Award for Best Voice in Nonfiction, and received wide early praise, including a starred review in Kirkus, which stated in part, "...an unforgettable survival story..." and from the highly popular BlueInk Reviews, "...a thrilling tale of danger, courage, and love...a loving ode to his wife Sandy and to his passion for climbing."
"Kasischke's perspective and analysis...may shock those who have relied on Into Thin Air as the most accurate account of what happened." - New York Book Festival Award
