Summary:

Just before her fortieth 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 twenty-six 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.

    Finding Audio books related to hiking and the PCT are slim pickings so one can’t be to critical. Over all I’d say the book was informative and kept my attention well. I knocked off a star for 2 reasons, one due to the obvious over exaggerations in describing a few of the more dramatic situations, and the other for the lack of a back story defining her motivations for hiking the trail which for me offers more insight to the author. For those who are mostly interested in hearing about the trail and her adventures then this is the book for you.

    The book was an interesting listen if you have any interest in backpacking . The author focuses on her hiking adventure of the Pacific Coast Trail-PCT. She is an excellent writer & story teller. She did justice to bringing the sights , views ,adventures to listeners mind. The references to those who aid hikers is encouraging, ie, trail angels, trail magic & just good people helping others..
