"Put aside the electronics, hoist your pack, and join 8-year-old Venado on the journey of a lifetime--an Appalachian Trail thru-hike. The boy finds adventure everywhere along the trail as he peppers his family with questions and proves the worth of Benton MacKaye’s 91-year-old dream." (Larry Luxenberg author of Walking the Appalachian Trail and president of the Appalachian Trail Museum Society
"In surefooted prose, A Child's Walk in the Wilderness chronicles the remarkable journey of a father and son . . . If ever two hikers fulfilled MacKaye's vision of the A.T. as a place "to walk, to see, and to see what you see," it would be this wide-eyed and adventuresome duo." (Laurie Potteiger Information Services Manager, Appalachian Trail Conservancy
