Four Boots One Journey

Four Boots One Journey
A Story of Survival, Awareness, and Rejuvenation on the John Muir Trail
Jeff Alt
Jeff, an avid hiker and backpacker, has married a wonderful woman. But Beth's idea of a vacation includes a hot shower and soft bed. So when he tries to convince her to join him she isn't interested. Several years after their wedding they experience the loss of a loved one. This spurs Beth to hike the John Muir trail with Jeff to raise awareness about depression.

I enjoy the author's style of writing. It reminded me a bit of the book A Walk in the Woods. He tells the story in an honest and refreshing way that makes me want to lace up my hiking boots and find some trails. The author tells of their experiences, while also peppering the story with his thoughts about life and about the aspects of depression. It was a fun and informative little book to read.

I received this book free of charge from Direct Contact in exchange for my honest review.
