The inspiring memoir of a plus-size woman who summited Kilimanjaro while overcoming fat prejudice and her own demons--"I was moved and inspired by every page of this beautiful book" (Cheryl Strayed)
Kara Richardson Whitely was determined to reach the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. But she struggled with each step--with the grueling conditions on the steep mountainside, with the 300-pound weight of her own body, and with her food addiction, which came from a lifetime of reckoning with feelings of failure and shame. Deep in her personal gorge, Kara realized the only way out was up.
Gorge: My Journey Up Kilimanjaro at 300 Pounds is the raw story of Kara's ascent from the depths of self-doubt to the top of the world. Her inspiring trek speaks to every woman who has struggled with her self-image or felt that food was controlling her life. Honest and unforgettable, Kara's journey is one of intense passion, endurance, and self-acceptance.
