Since his epic battle for survival in the Andes, recounted in the best-seller Touching the Void, renowned mountaineer Joe Simpson has had several brushes with mortality; he has lost many friends and heroes to the mountains. Now he questions the pursuit to which he has devoted his entire life. 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 adventure would itself be touched by tragedy. The Beckoning. Brash and colorful, Simpson has never been more entertaining.--[Source inconnue]
