“Daniel Dorr’s Kissing Kilimanjaro is a marvelous story, the kind of narrative that will appeal to readers of hardcore mountaineering literature and casual travel mis-adventure stories alike. His observations about East Africa, the cultures and wildlife, and the adventure he ultimately circles in on—that is, climbing ‘Kili’—are a delightful escape.”

“Kissing Kilimanjaro is a terrific account of the physical and emotional journey to the top of Kilimanjaro and it is told with humor, an eye for detail, and a sense of humbleness. I started the book the afternoon I received it and I could not put it down until I finished it. Anyone who has ever climbed a mountain, trekked across some storied route, or just dreamed of adventure will relate to this story.  Moreover, it is practical and helpful in describing the reality of making the journey while preserving the joy of the author’s voice in his narrative. It is a sweet tale of love, struggle, dedication and ultimately of preservation. I highly recommend this book to adventurer and the adventurer at heart.”  –Amazon.com Review

I really enjoyed this book and hope Mr. Dorr writes another. Whether you have traveled to Africa or not this is a great read. I could not put the book down.  It is a outstanding book about Africa and what a “ordinary man” can achieve if he posses some courage and fortitude. For anyone wondering if they could do something like this it is a great motivator.  –Amazon.com Review
