Just Passin' Thru: A Vintage Store, the Appalachian Trail, and a Cast of Unforgettable Characters

Like a well-crafted stage play, Just Passin' Thru delivers one suspenseful scene after another. But in this historic setting a store on the Appalachian Trail called Mountain Crossings the characters who show up are no fictional creations. Like any good drama, there are the good guys (and gals) and the weirdos, too. Some show up once (and that’s enough), and some appear again and again. But all are united by two things: the author’s story-capturing talent, and whatever it is that lures them to attempt (or conquer) a 2,200-mile path that climbs and plummets from Georgia to Maine.

Publisher's Summary

Like a well-crafted stage play, Just Passin' Thru delivers one suspenseful scene after another. But in this historic setting a store on the Appalachian Trail called Mountain Crossings the characters who show up are no fictional creations. They are the real-life stars of the author’s new life as a backpack-purging, canteen-selling, hostel-running, bandage-taping, lost-child finding, argument-settling, romance-fixing, chili-making man of many faces. Like any good drama, there are the good guys (and gals) and the weirdos, too. Some show up once (and that’s enough), and some appear again and again. Some are friends, and some dangerous. But all are united by two things: the author’s story-capturing talent, and whatever it is that lures them to attempt (or conquer) a 2,200-mile path that climbs and plummets from Georgia to Maine.

    "Just passin' thru but wish I could have stayed"
    Where does Just Passin' Thru rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is an amazing audio book. It has a great cast of characters. Billy Bumble Foot and Winton being my favorite. This is one of my favorite books i have listened to.


    What other book might you compare Just Passin' Thru to and why?

    I've never read or listened to anything like it. It did remind me of Empire Records, the movie, in a sense that the story wasn't about the store, but it was more of just a back drop to the lives and experiences of hikers, the staff, Winton and his family. I think it would be a great anime series, but that's just me.


    Have you listened to any of Jones Allen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any other of Jones Allen's performances, but I wouldn't hesitate to listen to his work. He created voices for the characters. Winton, Sierra, and Billy. He nailed it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    With out any spoilers I'd say the story of Lorac and her gift to Winton.


    Any additional comments?

    I ordered this book looking for another hiker book, but found something much more. This book was funny, entertaining and had so many positive messages. This book will help you see things from a different perspective reminding "that it's not about the miles, It's about the smiles" and that life would be better if we all could just stop and capture the moments of our lives that do our heart good. To "smile and dance."
