A father and son climb Mount Kilimanjaro. On the journey to the roof of Africa they traverse the treacherous terrain of fatherhood, divorce, dark secrets and old grudges, and forge an authentic adult relationship. The high-altitude trek takes them through some of the weirdest landscapes on the planet, and the final all-night climb to the frozen summit tests their endurance. On the way to the top father and son explore how our stories about ourselves can imprison us in the past, and the importance of letting go. The mountain too has a story to tell, a story about Climate Change and the future of humankind - a future etched all too clearly on Kilimanjaro’s retreating glaciers.

This book provided valuable insight into the daunting task of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. It also had a great back story about the developing relationship between a father and son as they took on the challenge of climbing the mountain. Great read overall. I would recommend this book to anyone who plans on climbing the mountain, has already climbed the mountain, or is just interested in the subject.
