    Jeff Alt takes you along every step of his 2,160-mile Appalachian Trail adventure. This entertaining journey includes bears, bugs, blisters, captivating characters, skunk bedmates, and hilarious food cravings. Alt walked more than five million steps in tribute to his brother, who has cerebral palsy and lives in a home called Sunshine. This trail adventure has inspired an annual event that has raised more than $200,000 for Sunshine. It includes hiking tips for the whole family.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to A Walk for Sunshine the most enjoyable?

    I have also listened to Bill Bryson's Walk in the Woods, which was enjoyable and, of course, funny. But, I enjoyed A Walk for Sunshine even more. It was upbeat adventure filled with something new in every chapter.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved hearing the stories about the other hikers and animal encounters. It was also very informative about how many hikers manage to walk the entire Appalachian Trail. It was also encouraging to hear about his support team, which seemed to make all the difference. And, great to know this was all done for a charity. Heartwarming!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this book while doing my own daily walking, so I listened for about 1 hour per day. But, there were many days when I would get back home and continue to listen. I was glad that Jeff made it the entire way, but sorry to have the book end. Great listen through Audible!
