Summary

Just before her 40th birthday, Gail Francis quit her perfectly good job and set out to hike one of the great trails of the world. Carrying everything she needed on her back, Francis spent five months walking from Mexico to Canada along the Pacific Crest Trail. Along the way, she lost her pack scrambling over scree in the desert, struggled to navigate high mountain passes, and wore the soles off her boots trekking across lava fields - all within some of the most pristine wilderness in the nation. Though she set out alone, her story includes an eclectic cast of characters. From the man walking the entire 2,700 miles in a series of 26 wedding dresses, to the woman making the journey in the company of her pet mouse, Francis learned to count on her fellow hikers for entertainment as well as a few important life lessons.

Good Story and Good Performance

Enjoyed listening to this book. It kept my interest, it moved well. One or two spots maybe dragged a little, all in all, there was not anything I didn't like about it.

Bummer

If you love liberty and capitalism, this is not the book for you. If you love listening to a hiking book with a rose colored view of unions, socialism and government run healthcare, this is your kind of audio book.
