Book Review - Hiking Through by Paul Stutzman

A life-changing journey begins with a single step
After Paul Stutzman lost his wife to breast cancer, he sensed a tug on his heart--the call to a challenge, the call to pursue a dream. With a mixture of dread and determination, Paul left his job, traveled to Georgia, and took his first steps on the Appalachian Trail. What he learned during the next four and a half months changed his life--and can change yours as well.
In Hiking Through, you'll join Paul on his remarkable 2,176-mile trip through fourteen states in search of peace and a renewed sense of purpose. Along the way, you'll meet fascinating and funny people, experience trail magic, and discover that every choice we make on the path has consequences for the journey. More than that, you'll come away with a new understanding of God's grace and guidance--even in the smallest things.

My review: This is not my typical read but I found I really enjoyed this book. It was well written and flowed nicely. Not a hiker myself, I found all the details of hiking very interesting. I like the idea of just some normal guy making such a huge change and taking on a major endeavor. I also liked the idea of being out on the trail alone if you wanted to be, to just be with nature; sometimes silence is a good thing. I would recommend this book to others.
