Meet author Jennifer Woodlief as she reads from and signs copies of her book, A Wall of White. Jennifer Woodlief, a former reporter for Sports Illustrated and a former case officer for the CIA, chronicles the Alpine Meadows tragedy along with an incredible tale of survival in the gripping new book A WALL OF WHITE: The True Story of Heroism and Survival in the Face of a Deadly Avalanche. Telling the tragic tale of those killed along with the incredible rescue of a woman determined to survive, A WALL OF WHITE is a remarkable tale of man versus nature and of the extraordinary heroism displayed by a group of rescuers committed to triumph over extreme odds. Many avalanches are unleashed by skiers or snowboarders who unknowingly—or willingly—venture onto unsafe or unstable snowpack. But on March 31, 1982 a once-in-a-century natural avalanche devastated the Alpine Meadows ski resort near Lake Tahoe, California, killing seven people. An almost unimaginable combination of events created the most massive and deadliest ski resort avalanche in U.S. history. (boconno1)
