Detailed Product Description

2002. 160 pp. Each with his own reason for going, four men arrive in Tanzania to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. Together, they face the challenges of climbing the Marangu route of the mountain, while at the same time developing friendships, overcoming personal hurdles, and coming to grips with their own and each other’s limitations.

Written by two-time Mount Kilimanjaro climber, Macon Dunnagan, this story accurately portrays the real hardships involved in climbing Kilimanjaro. He accents the positive aspects of the natural beauty of the mountain while describing the real challenges one will face as one climbs from a tropical rainforest below to Arctic white wildness at 19,388 feet to reach the highest point in Africa! New Paperback (only edition).  SIGNED by Maco Dunnagan

Captivating!

Ever read one of those books you just didn't want to put down? Here's another one!

This is a well-written tale of four men who travel to Tanznia to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. The men don't know each other before the trip, but bond and share as the climb progresses. Told from the perspective of one of the climbers, the story is intriguing and vivid. I felt like I was right there with the climbers and, as the story moved forward, inspired to travel to Africa to make the climb myself.

The author has made the climb twice, so the descriptions and story line are accurate and compelling. The promotional copy for the book suggests that the primary theme of the book is how the four men overcome their personal struggles. Anticipating one of those sappy moralistic tales, I braced myself for the Lessons Learned messages stuffed between paragraphs or at the end of chapters.

Surprise! No interruptions. No moralizing. No preaching. No psychologists lurking behind the next snowbank. The messages, the learnings, are there, but subtle.

This is a good read for those who enjoy inspirational books, for people who would like to learn and grow from learning about unusual experiences, and for young folks who have little appreciation of hardship and life beyond their limited knowledge. Recommended.
