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.

Crawling the last few yards to the fork, Bob studied the small fire the soldiers had started to heat the pot of stew that would be their supper. No matter what angle he took, Bob could not find a body anywhere near the fire or in the small opening the soldiers were huddled in. There was no deep drop-off for another quarter mile, so they couldn't have thrown her body over.Did she make it to the fork before the first group of soldiers made it there and decide to take her chances on up the trail? Moving on his belly, Bob worked his way through the few trees lining the left side of the trail, and in the darkness he smelled the sweat and blood of the soldier a split second before his hand slightly brushed the soldier's sticky blood pooling on the ground. Freezing his hand and body in place, Bob swung his eyes slowly from left to right and back again until he could make out the figure of the soldier and see the large gaping wound in his neck. Another smell suddenly filled his nose and his heart sank; the perfume Kelly wore filled his senses. Moving only his eyes, he tried to pierce the darkness where he knew his daughter had to be but he could not find her. Finally he swept his eyes to the very fringe of the light coming from their fire. He knew if he looked directly at the fire his night vision would be obliterated for at least sixty seconds, and sixty seconds could be the difference between life and death. Bob found nothing on the right side of the fire and slowly moved down and back up to the left of the fire. That was when he saw her!
