Description

Simpson recalls the terrifying avalanche that nearly wiped out his base camp during an attempt on the unclimbed north face of Gangchempo in the Himalaya. While climbing on Cho Oyo he meets a band of Khampas, including a four year old boy, fleeing over the high Nangpa La pass from the brutality of Chinese oppression in Tibet.

Simpson’s love of Himalayan life contrasts with the ruthless Chinese destruction of the Tibetan culture and people. A violent brush with a skinhead in his home town of Sheffield is mirrored in his chilling encounter with the Peruvian police. On Huascaran (Peru’s highest mountain) he hears unnerving ghostly voices and learns of the earthquake which buried 18,000 people and wiped out the town of Yungay below him. It reminds him of his boyhood visit to the Nazi concentration camp at Belsen.

Storms Of Silence ends with the trauma of reliving, in quite unexpected circumstances, the dance with death he had encountered before and recorded in his previous book Touching the Void.

  • Storms of Silence will be eagerly greeted by anyone who has read Simpson’s earlier works such as This Game of Ghosts
  • Author of the best-selling book Touching the Void, winner of the 1988 Boardman Tasker Award
