That's really "Hit the road Jack".
Robert Whitney
There's so much relentless preaching involving literally paragraphs of fill that the stuff about ACTUAL HIKING is easy to breeze right through.
Jules
I think anyone who would like to share the travails of long distance hiking from their comfortable arm chair will enjoy this book!

I have a whole bookcase filled with hiking books. Most of them are about the Appalachian Trail as I am a thru hiker myself. This book is really a terrific read and certainly spells out the reality of life on the trail. I have to be honest, as I read about "Nomads'" first couple of days on the trail in Florida I was amazed at the perseverance of this man. Quite frankly, I would have quit when I found myself in the dark up to my waste in swamp water - water containing who knows what critters! He also took time during his hike to stop and meet people. Rarely did he give anyone the impression that he just had to get going and didn't have time to talk. I'd like to have met him in my travels. His age at the time (59) reminded me of my hiking at that age. I think anyone who would like to share the travails of long distance hiking from their comfortable arm chair will enjoy this book!

Format: Paperback
This is the journal of M.J. Eberhart, a retired optometrist, who walked from Key West, Florida to Cap Gaspe, Quebec, not necessarily in that order. Each entry contains his mileage, where he slept that night, a short poem or quote and his thoughts and descriptions of his travails and the people he met on the way. Mr. Eberhart is a kind, decent man who never has a bad word to say about anyone. Everyone he meets is a friend, and I mean that in an admiring way. Despite having done something few others have ever done before he is not the least bit boastful.

I enjoyed meeting fellow hikers and seeing the Florida, Appalachain, and International Appalachain Trail through his eyes. This is not a "how to" book. There are no real maps and the paperback edition has only a few black and white pictures.

Mr. Eberhart does describe his motivation for making this hike. I only wish he went a little deeper. He shies away from his Christianity to an extent which may have been at the insistence of his publisher, which publishes hiking and adventure books. We also don't hear much about what led to this journey. I'd imagine working in a windowless eye examining room for many years would give someone the impetus to get outside.

Those minor criticisms aside, it was a fun read and I'd recommend it to anyone with even a mild case of wanderlust.

I purchased this book for my husband whom ran into Mr. Eberhard while hiking in MI. on the north country trail. I want to say how much he enjoyed reading this book. It carried him on the trail beside Nimblewill. I know he was sorry the book came to a close. But he will remember meeting Nimblewill on the North Country Trail for a very long time. We also hope your knee is recovering, We have read how this trek came to a close. Best wish'es to You,

Format: Paperback
This book is TORTUROUS. The author assumes a ponderous and pretentious style of speaking -- presumably from too many years of either preaching in a pulpit or listening to an old fashioned radio preacher. For example, the use of the word "most" instead of "very" got old in the first chapter, but he is still using it continually and I am only just now getting to the Appalachian Trail section. I am doggedly determined to finish this wretched book because I paid for it, but I'm literally HATING the process.

There's so much relentless preaching involving literally paragraphs of fill that the stuff about ACTUAL HIKING is easy to breeze right through. If you're looking for a good memoir about thru hiking, this is not that book.

Edit: Now that I've finallyyyy finished this book, I will relent a bit to say the best thing the author did was highlight how many incredible people he met along his hike and I definitely enjoyed that. But the description of the actual hiking was weak. Since I was reading this on my tablet, I was able to do image and map searches of the various spots he made an effort to describe with flowery 19th century sea captain type speak and actually get an idea of what he was seeing. But not from reading his writing. Flowery 19th century sea captain type speak is charming in books written 100 years ago, but just plain tiresome from a modern American.

Honestly, he sounds as if he's doing an 'interpretation of tongues' at a holy roller church.

I had to keep reminding myself that Nomad made this trek 16 years ago. He finished in Canada on his 60th birthday - a great accomplishment. I thought he was very self-absorbed and that he complained a lot. He quote Warren Doyle, I'm paraphrasing here...the weather and trail can't be changed only you can change; nomad complains a lot about the weather, the steep climbs and descents and his many aches and pains - the statement, No rain, No pain, No Maine' is no joke. When you thru-hike you are at Mother Nature's mercy. I applaud his sticking with it and completing his vision. I loved the quotes at the end of every day and I like that he wrote a lot about the generosity of the people he met. He left out the ugly parts. I know there are ugly parts - I thru-hiked the AT. Thisa nice book portraying Nomad's adventure - read it for some armchair hiking.

This book represents the wonderful journey of nomad. He brings insight into every step of the sights he encounters, people he meets and the obstacles he must overcome. I have enjoyed every page and smiled throughout his trek.
