    Hiking from Georgia to Maine sounds incredulous to most. To Lon Chenowith, it is a journey that calls him into the wild - a journey that reveals true tests of faith and will in the direst circumstances. What began as a dream in his teens to trek the Appalachian Trail takes flight with a preliminary hike with his two young boys from Amicalola Falls to Unicoi Gap. The initial intrigue wears off, and Lon quickly realizes he will be making a long, arduous journey alone, save for a few hiking partners and unique characters met along the way.

    Any additional comments?

    The religous tone of the book did not upset me, I expected it from the introduction, it was the only thing that gave is any sort of direction. I feel the author just didnt have enough to say. He spends 30% of the book just naming, by trail name, everyone he ever crossed pathes with. The naming of each person seemed to me so that they can say,"hey! I made it into a book!" Another 40% of the book listed every meal( whate he ate as well as everyone else dinning with him) while hiking and on his side trips. It seemed as though he had to fill space. It really got annoying. The other 30% was about the trail and how God guided him on his journey.

    He should have just stuck to giving talks. There is 30-45 mineuts of material. Ouch, tiring to get through. Kept waiting for more.
