    Description

    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 14 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.

    "Appalachian Trail enthusiasts, hikers, and dreamers will find this story a compelling account of the physicality of coming to terms with life and its sadnesses." ( Publishers Weekly)

    Interesting

    Pretty interesting read. I wasn't expecting for it to get extremely religious during most of the book, to the point of having to take a break from listening to it because the author was preaching to the reader. But if hiking and religion is your thing then this is a definite read! But if hiking only is, take it in small sections and it's worth listening to!

    More religious than spiritual.

    Some interesting details about the APT but not very technical. The author slowly adds more and more reference to Christianity until the hike is in the background.

    Solid on two different levels

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hiking Through?

    He has several revelations or epiphanies on the trail, or I had several revelations or epiphanies while reading about his experience on the trail, or both.

    Have you listened to any of Mike Chamberlain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    At some point you realize hes sincere and the book becomes personal

    Any additional comments?

    If your looking for a good read about the AT this books for you. If your looking for a good read about furthering your relationship with God this books for you. To find one that does them both at the same time is kind of a bit of a miracle.

    what a story of how powerful the human spirit is

    loved this book. Paul found his life again on the hiking trail. he not only found a way to continue his life without his wife but also found God and developed a faith he had never had before. in doing the hardest thing he ever did- he found himself, he found God, and found victory in a new life. Very well written and very descriptive of the hiking trail. it really describes how powerful the human spirit is and how God molds our spirit to what he wants by putting us into very very difficult situations. We shall go through the fire but will come out as gold!

    Way More Than I Expected

    I started this book expecting to learn about a wonderful hike and, in addition to that, I learned about our wonderful Creator!
    Good job Paul Stutzman. I hope to follow in your shoes some day.

    Motivational and great advice to prepare for this hike

    Loved listening to this ; wonderful introduction to his story with all that led to this undertaking as well as a great description of his personal life journey; it has moving and at times humorous human interactions of his feelings through out. Well done ! I want to do this hike even more after listening to this !

    God is my hiking partner

    Great story of hiking the Appalachian trail but a little too much religion for my liking.

    One Man's Spiritual Journey

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I enjoyed this book quite a bit. Because I hope to hike the Appalachian Trail myself in 2018, I am an avid reader of these travelogues. I knew that this one had a religious bias and while the book certainly does have its preachy moments, I didn't feel this was overdone. The beginning part of the book which described how he came to make the decision to hike the trail was the best part of this book. While it was reasonably well written overall, the story of his own spiritual journey did become a bit repetitive. Hearing more stories about the friends who came and went during his hike could have made this a five star book.

    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The epilogue explained some of his preachiness.

    Which character – as performed by Mike Chamberlain – was your favorite?

    I would have liked to hear more about the backstory of Padre.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Not enough action for a movie!

    More like a day in church than an adventure story

    It was clear from the beginning that Paul's intent was to find spiritual meaning in his life by hiking the AT. His trail name "Apostle" at the beginning of this book should have given me a clue. While I highly applaud his accomplishment and sympathize with the personal loss that motivated him on his journey, I found his continual conversations with God and his dysfunctional relating of random event to the intervention of God to be not only distracting but forced me to skip ahead to avoid another evangelical rants. If your looking for a good informational book on hiking the AT, I would pass this one by. There are other books that provide more information and meaningful content without the diversions from the pulpit. This book is more fitting to classified in the "Religion" section of the site.

    Way TOO preachy!

    I'll start by saying that this was one of the best books I've read about the Appalachian Trail. Unfortunately, which is not covered in the description of this book, is that the author was using this book as a means to spread the word of God. I almost gave it a 1 because I spent nearly $20 for a book that I thought was about the Appalachian Trail , and it was but it was also lots and lots of preaching.

    Persönliche Beschreibung

    Dieses Buch ist eine sehr persönliche Beschreibung warum der Autor sich auf die lange Reise des Apalachian Trails (AT) begibt.

    Nach dem tragischen Verlust seiner Frau nach 32 Ehejahren reift der Entschluss sich auf den Trail zu begeben. Der Autor gibt einen sehr persönlichen Einblick in den großen Verlust. Es ist dem Zuhörer daher sehr leicht nachzuvollziehen, wie sich das Buch entwickelt.

    Einmal auf dem Trail geht es nicht nur um die Beschreibung des Trails sondern auch um die Mitwanderer und alles was damit zusammenhängt,

    Ein kurzweiliges, gut zu verstehendes Buch - sehr empfehlenswert.
