The Kilimanjaro e-book is out!

Needs no introduction or commentary.

It’s been three years since my excellent adventure on (and near) Mt. Kilimanjaro, and “Dreamers and Doers,” the book which was produced by the women on my trip and many other women, is now out in e-format.  The photography by my partner in crime, photographer Karen Kasmauski, is worth it all by itself.

Some of the stories are wonderful, even unforgettable (a word I rarely use).  I’m thinking of the blind Australian woman who climbed the mountain as part of a fund-raising benefit for the organization that provided her seeing-eye dog.  What it took for her (and her guide, who literally talked her through every single step) to accomplish this is something that doesn’t seem possible.  But they did it.

Have a look at these sites and consider buying it — proceeds go to a project to provide schoolbooks to Tanzanian children.

They need books. We can't fix everything, but we can fix that.

      Amazing, I had no idea. Of course everyone knows about the San Francisco fire but Jacksonville seems to have not left the same impression on the general history we all learn in school. Thanks for the eruditioning! (Sorry for Jacksonville, though. The photos make it look like a very soulful little city back then.)
