4-0 out of 5 stars Very informative
Having gone through the preparation to climb Kili, I found this book to be very informative ... especially the sections on traveling through Tanzania and Kenya.Much thanks to the other reviewers for warnings on the use of Diamox and the need for conditioning.

4-0 out of 5 stars An essential guide!
Cameron Burns has filled a void with the publication of this climbing and trekking guide for Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya. While much is probably written about Kili, there is very little practical literature about Mount Kenya. The introductory pages are full of useful hints for traveling in Kenya that, from my recent experience there, all ring true. The route descriptions on Mount Kenya, while lacking in some detail, certainly convey the necessary information for a successful climb. It is already time for a new edition, however, since some of the features have changed. Kami Camp, for instance, no longer exists.

3-0 out of 5 stars Agree with Keith Kendall - Caution advised
As others have noted Mr. Burn's book is well written, and informative. But as Keith D. Kendall correctly observes in a review elsewhere on this page, the notion that a trek to the summit of a 19,000 foot peak may be accomplished without achieving a high level of cardiovascular fitness is not only misleading and potentially dangerous, but frankly absurd. Ditto for Mr. Burn's comments on the use of Diamox, which he either doesn't understand(his comments in the book indicate little experience with its correct use), or again, dismisses out of hand as he has never had to use it. You may. The information in the book is valuable, but as with everything else, it is only a single point of view. I liked the book a great deal, but take some pause when obvious misinformation is attributed to an `expert' source. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the Kili book to buy.
I climbed Kili in January 2006. In the months preceding the trip, I pored over numerous books on the mountain, including this book by Henry Stedman. This book was head and shoulders above the rest. Stedman's excellent descriptions of the day-to-day trekking are complemented by what I feel is genuine respect for the mountain and the people who live near it. After reading this book, you'll feel that you actually know what to expect; you'll stop worrying about whether you'll make it to the top and start looking forward to all the amazing details of this truly wonderful part of the world.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
My first time in Africa and trekking up Kili!! And everything I needed to know was in this great book. If you are planning to climb Kili, do not hesitate and get this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A very enlightened, informative read.
As one who had never been to Paris I found/find Ms. Anderson's book extremely helpful, as well as entertaining.The discovery of Paris is a very personal journey, and I give Ms. Anderson credit for NOT including photographs, because pictures limit ones' own experiences of Paris.If photographs had been included in this book, they would have limited my own imagination of African-American Paris, and my personal journey of discovery.Ms. Anderson is an accomplished writer and artist, who is very readable.Her artwork is intriguing.I highly recommend this book, as somebody who doesn't travel very much, however I also feel the seasoned traveler will also benefit from her research.It also makes a lovely gift.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Reflections!
Paris Reflections, Walks Through African-American Paris is a comprehensive walking guide through the streets of Paris.Written by Christiann Anderson and Monique Wells,two African-American women who have adopted the city as their home, the book is a well documented history of African-Americans and others of African descent who have lived, worked and played in the famed City of Lights.5-0 out of 5 stars Bravo Ms. Anderson!!
Congratulations on work well done. While there are thousands of writings on Paris, add this to your list of Paris reading. While this work is uniquely geared towards a personal experience of Paris through the eyes of African Americans, it is a must have for anybody planning a cultural tour of the city of Paris. I congratulate Ms. Anderson for her enlightening and beautiful book! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Explore Mount Kilimanjaro
Explore Mount Kilimanjaro is a guide detailing two trails (The Marangu route and the Machame route) to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. The two routes differ in distance, roughness of terrain, degree of ascending/descending, and the type of accommodations provided at the various stopover points. In this way, individuals can hike to Uhuru Peak at the top of the mountain while taking into consideration personal physical ability levels.
5-0 out of 5 stars An absolute MUST for forward planning
This is the 4th book in this series that we have used and it is packed with useful information to make a good trip even better.It is written in an easy to read and extremely descriptive manner and is not remotely condescending, as some guide books undoubtedly are.My husband has devoured every page in the pursuit of achieving one of his lifelong ambitions and we are booked to climb Mt Kilimanjaro in August of this year. After studying this book in depth, we have chosen the Machame route and feel that we are very well prepared and the information provided will be invaluable. As keen trekkers, we have tried the rest and now only use the BEST! Highly recommended.

2-0 out of 5 stars Colorful but not particularly helpful to climbers
It's a nice travelogue but it is not much help to someone looking to climb the mountain itself.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good introduction, but not enough on the trekking peaks
I found this book a good introduction to anyone expecting to go trekking in East Africa.It goes over, in substantial detail, all the factors you may face (medicine, visas, hotels, transportation, tours, trails, etc.).However, there is very little on the trekking peaks, which I thought would be the most interesting portion of the book.For example, on Mt Kilimanjaro there are only maybe 5-6 pages, with only an overview description of the routes.If you are looking for overall trekking in East Africa, this is good book, but if you are looking for info on the trekking peaks, there are other, more specific guides, that may be more helpful. ...
