A new book tells the story of a disastrous climbing accident that happened in the Tetons in 2003.

A group of 13 climbers were struck by lightning while climbing Grand Teton, and author Jennifer Woodlief says what drew her to the incident is what happened right afterwards.

Willow Belden talks with author Jennifer Woodlief. She recently published a new book about a particularly disastrous climbing accident in the Tetons. The book is called “A Bolt from the Blue,” and it describes the accident … and the ensuing rescue operation.
