Enotes does not acutally have a study guide proper for Into Thin Air. It does have a great 2 paragraph summary and criticism as referenced above.

I too have looked for notes on this novel because I teach it. Please place a request with Enotes so it gets on their assignment page to their writers. Many of us would benefit from this piece.

I do recommend googling Into Thin Air. As I looked for questions just online, I found several different sets that went chapter by chapter.

Thanks for using Enotes.

You can find the study guide to Into Thin Air by John Krakauer at the following address at eNotes:


It is a wonderful gripping story of his climb on the world's tallest mountain, Mount Everest, and what happens to a team that he is travelling with. He write a very detailed account and makes you feel as if you are right there climbing with him. While he does try to be specific and detailed, he is somewhat dramatic in his writings, but nonetheless powerful and evocative. It is a great story for anyone to read that thinks they are an expert and it tells a harrowing story of what happens to a person when he or she is overly confident in his or her abilities.

If there is no legitimate study guide here on eNotes, perhaps either request one by either e-mailing them or getting into contact with them in some way or another. It is a great novel about persistence and determination, and a study guide would be a great addition to the website. If you are looking for more immediate help, perhaps try googling it somewhere, or finding it on another place on the web. Good luck with it! It's one of my favorite books and should not go unnoticed.
