From Booklist:

This is a companion book to writer and mountaineer David Breashears' film, which follows the weeklong journey of five trekkers and a guide to the top of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Salkeld presents a comprehensive portrait of this impressive mountain, which draws thousands of climbers every year. The author describes Kilimanjaro as, in effect, a solitary island with unique flora and an ice-crowned, flattop appearance that has inspired folk legends and writings by Europeans ever since German missionaries initially saw it in the mid-1800s. Capably reworked by Salkeld, local oral tradition and historical accounts combine here with her personal observations of ascending through the ecological zones en route to the summit. In addition, stills of the ethereal heights and articles by experts on Kilimanjaro's geology and environmental fragility make the album irresistible on many levels. Gilbert Taylor
