For the author of this deeply-felt book, the planned hike is an opportunity to bond with his son and be what he calls "Barbarians"—in touch with natural processes far from the comforts of home. It's also a chance for nature to do some healing in his life too. For the boy, it's a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
Closely observed, wonderfully described and bracingly clear-eyed, this inspiring book will appeal to nature lovers and would-be AT hikers alike. It offers a vivid evocation of both the camaraderie and dangers of trail life—as well as the difficulties of modern child-rearing and the powerful lure of an untamed, natural world.
