Winner of 1988's Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature and the 1989 NCR Book Award, Touching the Void is the heart-stopping account of Joe Simpson's terrifying adventure in the Peruvian Andes. He and his climbing partner, Simon Yates, reached the the summit of the remote Siula Grande in June 1985 shortly before disaster struck. A few days later, Simon staggered back to their non-climbing companion with tragic news. What happened to Joe, and how the pair dealt with the psychological traumas that resulted when Simon was forced into to cut the rope, makes not only an epic of survival but a compelling testament of friendship. In 2003, the book was adapted into a documentary film that won the Best British Film award at the BAFTAs.
