Part outdoor adventure, part memoir, this is an emotional and spiritual account of six months spent by the author on the Appalachian Trail which stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some 2,000 miles of excptionally wild country. Overcoming exhaustion, hunger, injuries and loneliness, Winters captures the sense of majestic isolation, moments of staggering beauty and startling terror, and the conflicting senses of exhilaration and futility that exist in outdoor adventure. Truthful, often funny, this is an exciting account of an exceptional journey.

Beautiful, clear evocative writing about both the journey of walking the Trail but also the journey of sorting out what you really want in life. Recommended read.
