Detailed Product Description
NY, 1993, 1st edition. 221 pp. Hardcover with dust jacket. Near Fine to Fine.

At a spring family gathering, author Andrew C. Hartzell and his brother plan a Christmas trip to Tanzania, East Africa. Their objective: to lead eight men up Mount Kilimanjaro, while their wives visit the exotic spice island of Zanzibar.
 
No stranger to high altitudes, Hartzell appreciates the risks involved and, like the disciplined lawyer he is, plans the trip in great detail, down to a rigorously observed physical-conditioning program. But the best laid plans can fall short, as the two Hartzell parties discover.
 
While the implacable forces of nature are bringing events to a tragic conclusion high in the snows of Kilimanjaro, the author's wife, Mary Lee, is struck down by a mysterious illness while she and her companions are stranded on Zanzibar. A richly turned account of an amazing adventure, The Treacherous Snows brings alive the exhilaration of a mountain climb and the human drama of a family facing challenge and tragedy in a foreign land.
