Kilimanjaro and Beyond: A Life-Changing Journey – Barry Finlay

It is January 16, 2009, at approximately noon local time and BARRY FINLAY and his son CHRIS are propped against a rock, struggling to draw a breath at Stella Point on Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain. Their destination is tantalizingly close, yet there are two factors that will determine what happens next: the weather and — more importantly — the state of their health. Where they go from here is in the hands of their guides. They await the decision.
