Janice GareyDecatur, GAAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Mountains to Ascend: Ups&Downs of the AT & LifeSeptember 3, 2012Janice GareyDecatur, GAAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleHave you been in awe of those among us who have the willpower and perseverance to hike all 2,176 miles of the Appalachian Trail? Well, meet Paul Stutzman who did it. On the trail he was known as Apostle Paul. Not only did he hike it, but he also journaled his physical, emotional and spiritual progress over those miles.
Paul had an emotional mountain to ascend as he faced the grief of losing his wife to cancer. He hiked alongside others who were meeting life goals and some, like himself, were putting their physical body to the extreme test while healing emotional wounds from extreme loss.
Another dimension revealed within the grandeur of beauty pierced by hardships of storms along the way was Paul Stutzman's feeling of the divine unseen companionship of God. A formerly shallow acknowledgement of God's part in his life was replaced with recognition of God's protection. Paul discovered the depth of God's love and care for him and others through serendipidous encounters.
My husband liked this book so much that he read it aloud to me while we commuted to and from work. He, like Paul Stutzman, has hiked the AT from Georgia to Maine. Much was familiar to him except for the use of cell phones for making arrangements and the level of amenities available at some points. Things were more basic or primitive when my husband hiked it in 1973.
This was such a good book for us to share on so many levels. It is the hike of a lifetime realized even by sitting through the story. It feels like being there on the trail with all the humorous situations and painful slips and falls. It gives a new perspective to the ups and downs of life. Thankfully, by reading the book you do not have to sweat or get blisters. Your marriage will be helped if you choose to read this with your spouse.

If you are curious about the Appalachian Trail, this book tells alot of things about it. I was impressed with the detail he took the time to include. I like true adventure stories like this and would like to read his next book Biking Through. He is very God-conscious and that was very appealing to me, plus the honesty about himself, about the trail and the people he encountered. I pass alot of my books on to my mother and I am going to encourage her to read it.
