The Gilmore Girls made me read this, and they never lead me astray. This book, in equal parts, makes me want to hike the Pacific Crest Trail, AND it makes me NEVER want to hike the Pacific Crest Trail, which is the perfect combo.
The audiobook version, read by Bernadette Dunne, is excellent.
Plus, it probably should be noted that sometimes I don’t take well to nonfiction, particularly to memoirs that progress like fiction novels . I will read some of them, on occasion, and I will love some of them, on occasion. The love is rare enough that I typically hesitate to pick them up, so anytime one of them speaks to me, its a definite win.
