Joe Simpson was made famous by his book “Touching the Void” which sold over a million copies worldwide (and subsequently made into a movie) in which he described a successful but disastrous and near-fatal attempt by himself and his climbing partner Simon Yates.
He has also survived many other major accidents, notably breaking his other leg in the Himalaya while climbing. His later non-fiction books describe other expeditions including an attempt on the North Face of the Eiger, and his changing feeling towards extreme mountaineering brought on by the many deaths that surround the pursuit.
