This book is a quick and fun read with its adventure, humor and it's educational tidbits. It is told by the author through journals written when he was young and that theme comes through in the telling of stories and thoughts. It is obvious he likes adventure and nature and is inquisitive about his surroundings and of the people he meets on his journey. He is true to his word that he met some interesting people. Each had some different wisdom to impart, stories to share or a little bit to teach this young man from their own experiences. The adult side of him also added some facts about the places he visited. I am not quite as adventurous or much of an outdoors person, so I enjoyed living vicariously! Will read more of these should the author publish again. I bought the Kindle version.

As a fan of the Gold Rush - Alaska television series, I am eager to get my hands on all first-hand accounts of adventures in that great State. What a joy to have come upon this interesting book! The author is to be commended for writing a visually stunning and thoughtful memoir. Parts of it made me laugh outloud. Leaving from Boulder, Colorado, with his buddy Bryce, he cadges rides, meals and stories from almost everyone he meets. No doubt he is a person of great personal charm. His trip took place in 1978, and it would be interesting if he could re-trace his journey in 2012 and diary the differences. Somehow, I feel the spiritual questions he turned over in his mind 35 years ago would still feel fresh. Highly recommended.

Enjoyed the book. It gives an interesting and entertaining view of hitchhiking to Alaska through the eyes of a college student during the late 70's. The author's sense of humor, observations of nature and his recollections of the the people he met during the journey are entertaining and insightful.

This first book by Scott Deitler, 'Colorado to Alaska: A Hitchhiking Journey' brought back the feel, flavor and excitement of one's travel as a young man. It was like being in a time travel tale that truely reflects the 1970's and the innocence of youth in Mr. Deitler's quest to see the American northwest. This fun and well written travelogue is a page turner that I couldn't put down. It captured my interest as it layed out the landscape of America and Canada at a time that a dollar still got you somewhere and actually bought you something. A fun and entertaining read from page one.

Full disclosure: Scott Deitler is my cousin and I heard about this book from Wendy, his sister, who posted about it on Facebook. As a newly retired professional about to embark on my own travel adventures, I immediately downloaded and read his book. I found Scott's entries thoroughly enjoyable and gave me a thirst to see the sights he describes personally. It's one thing to read about a place and see a TV program about it. It's quite another to experience it in person. Reading his thoughts on the environment, man's place in the world, cosmology and theology was enlightening and entertaining. A good read and well worth your time. Thanks, Scott.
