Groves, Derek.
The Roof of Africa on Wheels:
(Alfresco Books, 1999). Commentary by Jon Amos. Foreword by Chris Bonnington. Jon Amos became a paraplegic following a road accident when just 17. Since then he has advanced the awareness of what a person with a disability can achieve by the challenges he has personally undertaken, raising thousands of pounds for charity in the process. In 1998 he attained an altitude record by someone in a wheelchair - 16,040 feet up Mount Kilimanjaro. This book vividly describes the preparation and actual ascent by Jon and the team. With a fascinating selection of colour photographs, this story of Jon's grit and determination, and the dedicated teamwork of those who accompanied him, makes inspiring reading. Paperback. Fine. 104pp. Order No. NSBK-A6269
