)-- M.G. Edwards’ book, “Kilimanjaro: One Man's Quest to Go Over the Hill,” is a finalist for the 2012 Global Ebook Award in the category of Inspirational/Visionary - Non-Fiction. It was chosen from among 1,000 entries judged by more than 250 category experts.
“Kilimanjaro” is a memoir chronicling the author's attempt to summit Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. At forty years old and on the verge of a midlife crisis, he tried to change his life by climbing a mountain. This is his true story of facing Kilimanjaro and other challenges at middle age.
Readers have called Kilimanjaro “life changing,” “inspirational,” and “an epic journey of self-discovery,” and “a peek into someone’s personal travel journal.” This book is for anyone who feels over the hill and needs encouragement to make a life change in the face of difficult odds. It's also for the casual climber, mountaineer, or hiker who is interested climbing one of the world's tallest mountains. Filled with insights and advice for those who are contemplating their own Kilimanjaro climb, this book will put you on the mountain and inspire you to go over it.
Edwards is a writer of books and stories in the mystery, thriller and science fiction-fantasy genres. He also writes travelogues. A former U.S. diplomat, he served in South Korea, Paraguay, and Zambia before leaving the Foreign Service to write full time. He lives in Bangkok, Thailand with his wife Jing and son Alex.
