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 climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, Glover turned his sights 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. Kosciusko 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.

Editorial Reviews

“Faith, hope, and love fuel this mountain climber’s passion to reach new heights.” —The Criterion, Indianapolis“Walter’s treks are inspiring to many people. It’s not just the challenge of the climb at his age when most people are slowing  own, but it’s where his heart is while making the difficult grades.”  —Times Mail editorial“Glover meshes with fitness as he does with prayer. He trains 120 miles per month, not simply walking or jogging but climbing any and every hill he can find while carrying a 40-pound backpack and wearing boots. One mile a day must be vertical, by the way.”—Dale Moss, The Louisville (KY) Courier-Journal“Glover has combined his passion for mountains with another passion, helping people, youth in particular. His expeditions to hike mountains in foreign lands are dubbed 2Trek4Kids. —Leader-Democrat“Wally Glover of St. Vincent’s Jennings Hospital in Indiana, won the first national Eye on Wellness” award from Virgin Health Miles. Wally is an active 61-year old HealthMiles member, committed to staying active and promoting activity within his community. —Virgin Pulse Health Miles“Glover goes to schools and tells students the rewards of getting naturally high and healthy. He tells them they can do whatever their heartfelt passion pictures.—The Columbus Republic“Overcoming the mountainous battle of knocking down childhood obesity will take more than one man on a mission—it’s going to take a change in society and its behaviors. However, thanks to people like Glover who point their commitment toward doing good, we know we’re taking positive steps in the right direction.”   —Bedford Times Mail editorial
