Detailed Product Description

2002, 1st edition. 271 pp, 100's of color photos. A tie-in to Breasher's Imax film. Kilimanjaro, an African icon, is one of the two seven summits that can be climbed by anyone, including children and senior citizens (plus Kosciusko). This coffee-table book is a great choice for armchair travelers and anyone who wants to climb (or has climbed) Africa's highest mountain. The book documents the journey of a party of climbers who accompanied David Breashears and his team as they made an IMAX film about the mountain. Author Audrey Salkeld, who specializes in books about mountaineering, has assembled a great mix of Kilimanjaro ecology, geography, history, lore, and travelogue related to her climb.

 
The story starts with East Africa's Chagga people and their legends, then moves to missionary Johannes Rebmann whose story of equatorial snow was met with disbelief, then on to the other explorers, and eventually the first (known) mountaineers who climbed the mountain. Several other authors contributed articles on the Kilimanjaro's relation to the Rift Valley, Missionaries in Africa, Elephants, Mountain Sickness, Film and Literature, Plants, Volcanic History, etc. Very well illustrated with color photographs and historical images, as one would expect from a book published by National Geographic. Large format hardcover, DJ, Fine or New.

This is a large book so extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail and International Mail.
