Touching the Void is a heart-stopping, true account of Joe Simpson's terrifying adventure in the Peruvian Andes.
He and his climbing partner, Simon, reached the summit of the remote peak, Siula Grande.
A few days later, Simon staggered into base camp, exhausted and frost-bitten, with news that Joe was dead.
What really happened to Joe makes not only an epic of survival but a compelling testament of friendship.
