In 1943, Felice Benuzzi and two Italian compatriots escaped from a British POW camp in equatorial East Africa with only one goal in mind: to climb the dangerous 17,000 foot Mount Kenya that Benuzzi would stare at from inside the camp. No Picnic on Mount Kenya is the classic tale of one of the most bizarre and thrilling adventure stories of the 20th century, a story that has earned its place as a unique masterpiece of daring suspense.
