Reader comments about Kilimanjaro, One Woman’s Journey to the Roof of Africa and Beyond

US Review

“While this is a book about reaching the summit of one of the largest mountains in the world, it is actually the story of so much more: courage, commitment, strength, and kindness.”  

Main Line Today

“Determined to be a ‘lighter presence in the world,’ Newtown Square’s Deb Denis made the ascent of Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro in the summer of 2011.  Faced with her mother’s brain cancer diagnosis, and despite athletic shortcomings, Denis forged ahead with her journey to East Africa, overcoming fear and pushing her physical limits.  Kilimanjaro chronicles all the things that made the climb possible, from meditation and diet to intense reflection and, ultimately, hope”  -Emily Riley, Main Line Today Magazine
