Critic reviews

“Engaging.” ( Newsday)
"Lively…Humorous...Upbeat...It will make you feel good. Alt’s zest for life shines through on every page. Alt’s words amply convey the camaraderie among fellow hikers, the beauty of the eastern mountains, and the physical hardships that must be endured on a walk of over 5 million steps…” ( Outdoor Times )
