This Game of Ghosts
Published: 1993
An introspective look at the risks of mountaineering from a man who has risen from almost dead. "Why" is the simple question - however, it is far more nuanced, and Simpson explores this and the risks involved through experience and loss of members of the climbing community. He doesn't answer the question as much as pokes and surgically examines the perplexing and honest reasons why climbers keep climbing.
