I saw a copy in a bookstore here in Chattanooga yesterday. Look like a good read, but I'm too stacked up now to pick it up.

I've spent a little time with AWOL, and if his book is half as nice as the author, it'll be a good one.

Hiked the same year as AWOL and had the pleasure of sharing some miles with him. Have the book.

Book definitely measures up to AWOL's character.

Coincidentally, I started the book last night myself. I'm about half way through and think it's definitely one of the better books in the genre (that I've read). Well done!

And for yet another unsolicitated testimonial: Very good book. I enjoyed it from cover-to-cover. One of those books that once you start, you have a hard time putting it down and can't wait to pick it up again.

Lending my copy to the mother of two brothers who are currently on the AT for a thru-hike.

Can someone post the book's vitals so we can find it? Title, Author, etc.


Sounds like I need to be reading it.

Awol's account of his thru was a pleasure to read. Great author and looking forward to the next time he decides to go AWOL.
