This blend of travel adventure and personal history is often more entertaining than informative a la the other entries in the "Journeys" series. Canadian-born Stevenson (Kiwi Tracks) has lived across the globe, including outdoor enthusiasts' paradise, Norway, which he describes here. He exults in the magnificence of the country's fjords and mountains but is less enthusiastic about the weather (often rainy, even in summer) and the long winter nights. Unless one is familiar with Norwegian geography, the segments of his walk (with companion Annabel) from Oslo to Bergen may lack a sense of place. Further, although Stevenson frequently mentions taking photographs, they are, unfortunately, not included. There is, however, sufficient information about trekking in Norway to whet the appetite of those seeking a new travel destination. Recommended for larger public libraries with extensive travel collections. Janet Ross, formerly with Sparks Branch Lib., NV
