Detailed Product Description

New York, 1982, 1st edition. 84 pp, color ills. Excellent description and history of the climb and the mountain. John Reader does a good job of combining historical, contemporary and naturalist perspectives in a sometimes comical summary of his photographic experience on Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Not being a mountaineer, his story includes many amusing anecdotes that anyone who has climbed the mountain can relate to. The photographs add just the right amount of tangibility and perspective to elicit fond memories from those that have already climbed it, or a strong desire in those that are thinking about it. Water damaged hardcover book, no dust jacket. Pages are rippled but not stuck together. A bargain for a reading copy. Condition ugly but readable. Book is large format and heavier than usual; extra postage will be requested for Priority or Foreign Mail.
