This Game of Ghosts free pdf This is a sequel to "Touching the Void", which won the 1989 NCR Award for Non-fiction and the Boardman Tasker Award, and in which Simpson described a fall in the Himalayas which crippled and almost broke him. Forced to test his nerve he struggled on crutches to 20,000 feet on Pumori, only to hear the news of the death of yet one more friend in the mountains. In an attempt to find a catharsis for his confused emotions, he wrote this memoir of the signposts that have directed him since childhood to measure fear and embrace the unknown.
