Storms of Silence, Joe Simpson
1 Joe Simpson Storms of Silence
Jonathan Cape 232598 London 1996 First Edition 0224042165 / 9780224042161 Hardcover Good Condition Good A moving account of the author's maverick life as a mountaineer. Behind the tales of adventure is a brooding disquiet as he struggles to come to terms with the grinding poverty and violence lurking so close to the surface of life. Joe Simpson recalls the severe snowstorm that put an end to an attempt with four others on Gangchempo, and the infection that forced him to abandon the climb on Cho Oyu in Tibet. During that expedition he has a disturbing encounter with a party of political refugees and a 4-year-old boy fleeing across the Tibetan border. He becomes obsessed with stories of Chinese brutality in the old-world Tibet they overran by force 40 years ago. He also begins to question the ethics of playing rich men's games in Third World countries, contributing little to the local people who endure a fearful struggle to survive. Oppression abroad makes him see mindless violence in his hometown of Sheffield in a new light. The book ends with his first trip to the Andes in Peru since Touching the Void. Side edge of dust jacket has a few pieces missing. Small stain mark to outer page edges. 304 pages. Previous owners name on front endpaper. Illustrated with colour and black and white photographs.

Fear No Boundary: One Woman's Amazing Journey, Lincoln Hall with Sue Fear
4 Lincoln Hall with Sue Fear Fear No Boundary: One Woman's Amazing Journey
Lothian Books 241243 2006 0734409761 / 9780734409768 Trade Paperback Near Fine Condition When mountaineers Lincoln Hall and Sue Fear collaborated in writing FEAR NO BOUNDARY, neither could have imagined that within a year one would be left for dead and the other would die on the mountains they loved. In April 2006 Sue Fear, the first Australian woman to climb Everest via the North Ridge Route, set out to summit Mt Manaslu, the world's eighth highest mountain. If she achieved this feat, Sue would become the first Australian woman to have climbed five of the world's fourteen mountains over 8000 metres. Sadly it would be her last climb. Although Sue successfully summitted Manaslu on 28 May, tragically she fell to her death in a crevasse during her descent. FEAR NO BOUNDARY chronicles the incredible journey Sue Fear took on her path to Everest, following her decision to make travel and adventure-guiding her profession. While Sue s celebration of her fortieth birthday on top of Mount Everest in May 2003 and the nail-biting climb from Base Camp to the summit provides a framework, this updated edition also details Sue's other climbing achievements and includes a postscript outlining her final expedition. What drove this slightly-built and unassuming woman from Sydney's leafy North Shore to set her sights on a career as a mountaineer? How did she feel as a woman climbing in a predominantly male domain? These questions and more are answered as we follow Sue's journey around the world and off the beaten track to destinations such as Bolivia, Bhutan, Uzbekistan and Kamchatka, climbing the Andes, Mount Kilimanjaro and of course the Himalaya. Awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in 2005 for services to mountaineering and the community, in particular the Fred Hollows Foundation, Sue's is an inspirational story. 272 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Sport::Climbing & Mountaineering; Sports & Pastimes; Inscribed by Author. ISBN: 0734409761.
