Five Million Steps
- Adventure Along the Appalachian Trail
- By: Lon Chenowith
- Narrated by: Mark McDevitt
- Length: 4 hrs and 51 mins
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.
Really hard to get through

Five Million meals, prayers, and trail names
Is there anything you would change about this book?
I would like to hear more commentary about the hike and less of the detail about who he saw and what religion they claim to be. Good book if you want to read everything you can about the AT. You will hear the name of every every shelter on the AT and every place to grab a peach Snapple. You won't hear a lot of wit, but you will figure out that you will meet persons representing every religious denomination on the trail. Methodists are most favorable in the authors opinion.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Drum roll please...well a drum roll would have been nice.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Do you think Five Million Steps needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Not at all.

We are all indigenous to the planet Earth - and that is why each of us can benefit from indigenous wisdom.

Anglo review of Living the Lakota Way
If you could sum up Living the Lakota Way in three words, what would they be?
Glad I listened to this book. Good but not great. A solid history lesson and thought provoking at times. However, I'm left thinking that this author's agenda is to justify his love for smoking "Sweet Grass."
