Mount Kilimanjaro is sometimes called "everyman's Everest" because even an inexperienced climber can reach the summit. That's how Daniel Dorr started; a novice who was trying to impress a beautiful brunette with dreams of adventure. Six months after spouting big plans he was lying on a cold gravel trail in Africa at 18,000 feet, panting and hacking in the darkness.

Overview

Mount Kilimanjaro is sometimes called "everyman's Everest" because even an inexperienced climber can reach the summit. That's how Daniel Dorr started; a novice who was trying to impress a beautiful brunette with dreams of adventure. Six months after spouting big plans he was lying on a cold gravel trail in Africa at 18,000 feet, panting and hacking in the darkness. But it didn't end there.

In Kissing Kilimanjaro Dorr shares the adventure. Join him as he fondles expensive gear, travels local-style across East Africa, confronts a Maasai warrior, trudges up the mountain (twice), and vomits on top of the African continent.

It's the story of an ordinary man trying to do something extraordinary and all the rewards-both large and small-of reaching for personal fulfillment through adventure travel, physical challenge, and being willing to leave it all on the mountain.
