Seattle, WA: Mountaineers Books, 1994.
First American Edition. Hardcover. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Small bump to fore edge of book visible on both boards, otherwise a fine copy, in a near fine dust jacket with a scratch at the upper right corner. Signed by Simpson (without inscription) under his name on the title page. A sequel to his mountaineering classic, Touching the Void, this work is both a memoir of his climbing life and a philosophical reflection on why climbers take such great risks for such fleeting rewards.
