I needed a break. I needed ."an off-the-wall dalliance. An all-boys' adventure in a faraway land. An adventure far away from telephones and faxes and lawyers. An adventure with an abundance of humor, serious physical exertion, and danger nominally short of life-threatening." After a little research and a few phone calls, I decided that a climb to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania, with four friends, via the "Tourist Route," would fit the bill. In this book, the author tell the story of the climb-four days up, and two days down-with a humorous yet sensitive slant, describing the perils of altitude, the vicissitudes of Mother Nature, the enjoyment of multi-generational and multi-ethnic collaboration, the travails of disappointment, and the exhilaration of success. And where it suits his fancy-and does no harm to accuracy-he embellishes an observation or encounter to illuminate the pure joy of the experience. After all, it was about good fun, and the telling of it should be too.

As a single, female, African American, over-forty, divorcee, the author had an epiphany: She had better start living her life. Having lost both parents early in life, she reasoned that she had many more years behind her than left in front of her. That meant that she would embark on doing all of the things she'd ever dreamt of doing. Having never so much as camped out for longer than a day, she decided to take a trip far from the concrete confines of her urban life, and embark on a solo sojourn with Mother Nature to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania, East Africa. She had no earthly idea what to expect; not even a clue of whether she could survive at an altitude of 9,000 feet, much less the height of Mount Kilimanjaro at 19,340 feet. Even so, she made the journey across the Atlantic to the top of the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Join the author on this journey as you read her first-person account, and her insight into how you, too, can make a successful trek to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.

What happens when a petite, menopausal, southern Mississippi Jewish homemaker is offered the adventure of a lifetime to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak? As a last minute invitee to fill a cancelled spot, she scours the internet for advice from a woman's perspective on the experience, but finds nothing. And thus so, was inspired to keep this journal account from beginning to end, encouraged by Phil Gray's book "Mt. Kilimanjaro Via the Marangu Route: Tourist Route My Ass" written upon his return .... er, survival. She finds the humorous "ups & downs" just too ridiculous to keep it all to herself.

"It was common knowledge that the woods behind my house in Milford were teeming with the most venomous of vipers. Monstrous Copperheads lurked behind every rock. Hideous Water Moccasins slithered through every creek. Big snakes. Poisonous snakes. All banded together in an insidious reptilian conspiracy, dedicated to the elimination of ten-year-old boys from the face of the earth." Connecticut, 1952. School is out for the summer. In a time before computers, X-boxes, and iPods, the neighborhood kids have to get into trouble the old-fashioned way-using their imagination. Ten-year-old Sonny Boy gets the bright idea for a practical joke involving his mother and a snake. He fears the loathsome reptiles more than anything in the world, but he figures it will be a great gag that will make him a hero to his buddies, Charlie and Pudgy-and to a certain girl. But three bullies harass the boys at every turn, and a battle of wits ensues. Nothing, however, diminishes Sonny Boy's infatuation for, or attempts to impress, the lovely Mary Lou. During that hot summer, Sonny Boy befriends an octogenarian named Otto, whose wisdom facilitates his introduction to adolescence-and a final showdown with a snake.
