In this exciting mountaineering story, Walter Glover continues his quest to climb on the world’s Seven Summits. After reaching Mt. Everest Base Camp and later summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro, Glover turned his sites on Europe’s highest peak: Mt. Elbrus in Russia, at 18,500 feet. Accompanied by friend and colleague Lori Walton, RN, BSN, this senior citizen, journalist, and hospital pastoral care chaplain trained in the flatlands of southern Indiana, hiking 120 miles per month while carrying 40-pound backpacks. This would be Lori’s first high altitude climb, and the politics and culture of Russia brought unexpected adventures for both climbers. Later, Walter would summit Mt. Kosciuszko in Australia, at 7,310 feet. Though the challenge was small, comparatively speaking, Mt. Kozzie generated the single most revenue for Glover’s charity, 2 Trek 4 Kids. Not many people from Indiana climb world-class mountains, and fewer still use their treks to raise funds for children’s health and wellness. The Mt. Kozzie climb raised more than $26,000. As part II of the Seven Mountain Story, this book contains vivid accounts of weather, people, and unexpected challenges. As always, Glover writes with the warmth of a real person and includes his spiritual journey as well as physical challenges, told with a healthy dose of self-deprecating humor.
