Description: A gripping introduction details the lonely death of an Indian climber on Mount Everest. as filmed by other climbers sitting only thirty yards away -- climbers who made no move to help or comfort the dying man. In the controversy surrounding this incident, and others like it, Simpson asks, "Were we irrecoverably losing the essence of why we went to the mountains; indeed had we already lost it forever?"

Simpson moves on to question the events of May 10, 1996 on Everest, offering an objective, well-researched, and insightful analysis. Weaving the thread of the larger question through other issues, he also questions media spin on climbing accidents, guided climbing, and the terrible treatment of Sherpas, particularly during the severe storm of November 1995 by trekkers in Nepal. Taking as many risks in his writing as he does in climbing, Simpson's latest work is certain to challenge readers and inspire debate.
