Book Description

Guatemala sits on the junction of three of the world’s major tectonic plates, suffers frequent earthquakes and has a chain of thirty volcanoes running along the plate boundary parallel to the Pacific Ocean, four of which are active. It's not the sort of place most people think of spending their Christmas holidays, but that's exactly what Mark Horrell did.

Accompanied by a disparate group of Brits, Americans, Irishmen, Greeks and Guatemalans, he sets out to climb seven volcanoes in eleven days, including Volcan Tajumulco, the highest mountain in Central America.

As a mountaineer he is used to contending with objective dangers such as storms and avalanches, but he has never been turned back by thermal activity, and with volcanic gases emitting powerful fumes and the risk of being hit by flying debris a remote possibility, summit success is far from guaranteed. How would the top of Central America compare with other peaks he's climbed?

It is a quick read. Interesting because I have been to Guatemala. Not sure I would have liked it as much if I was not familiar with the area, but it is a good little book.
