Detailed Product Description

Nairobi, 2001, 1st edition. 192 pp, 150 color photos. Large format hardcover, Dust Jacket, Fine condition.

A nicely illustrated, oversize picture book with concise text covering the history and nature of Kilimanajro.

Nothing in Africa is as majestic and awe-inspiring as Kilimanjaro. This fabled mountain - Africa's tallest - which lies astride the Kenya-Tanzania border rises more than 19,000 feet, into a clear blue equatorial sky, its crown of snow and ice ever beckoning and alluring. This book has a description of each major route to the summit, with large color photos.

A source of mystery from time immemorial, Kilimanjaro is the subject of many fables and legends and home to the Chagga and Maasai people, two of Africa's most colorful and fascinating communities - the one an industrious agricultural Bantu group, the other a Nilotic tribe of fierce and noble warriors and pastoralists.

Their engrossing history and the captivating beauty of Kilimanjaro and its natural history are portrayed here in all their glory through the magnificent color photography of David Pluth and Mohamed Amin while Graham Mercer's compelling and often lyrical narrative delves into the many secrets of The Great White Mountain, a spectacle that has attracted and fascinated diverse peoples down through the ages.

This is a heavy large format book; extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail or International Mail.
