Detailed Product Description
Seattle, The Mountaineers, 1994. 330 pp, 46 photos. The author of the highly acclaimed Touching The Void has written an extraordinary sequel. He tells of another fall in the Himalaya that nearly crippled him, and of the signposts directing him since childhood to measure fear and embrace the unknown. Paperback.

* The sequel to Touching the Void

* 38-page black-and-white photo inserts.

The author of the universally acclaimed Touching the Void exorcises the demons of his climbing past in this spellbinding memoir. After his near-death ordeal and its miraculous outcome on Peru's Siula Grande, Joe Simpson resumed climbing, but met with a perplexing number of accidents and difficulties.

In This Game of Ghosts he attempts to sort out his karma, revealing his propensity toward adventure and risk and recalling his fifteen years of climbing on three continents. His gripping story recounts, with soul-baring honesty, experiences that range from his childhood to the present day, from hilarious to poignant to nearly unbelievable. He wonders about luck - or the choices along the way - and his repeated survival of the kind of disasters that took the lives of so many climbing friends. A compelling work of adventure and introspection for both mountaineers and armchair travelers.
