"The Beckoning Silence" by Joe Simpson

Our Price: $18.95


In a series of adventures that takes the reader from Bolivia to the Alps, from Colorado to Spain, Simpson explores the enchantment of rock and ice and the forces that drive him to climb in the face of extreme risk. An Attempt on the hooded, mile-high north face of the Eiger is meant to cap his career--but this final adevture would itself be touched by tragedy. The Beckoning Silence is about the siren song of fear and Simpson's struggle to come to terms with it.
