This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Karen and I both read your book about the trip to the top of Africa. Your colorful descriptions of your fantastic trip were interesting! What an incredible journey. We found what we would have thought impossible: your writing conveys even more enthusiasm than your persona. As hikers who love the mountains and wilderness, we shared and enjoyed your trip. Your photographs were outstanding and helped greatly to convey your vision of the trip. It truly was a trip of a lifetime
