Hiking!: The Ultimate Natural Prescription for Health and Wellness Paperback – April 1, 1997
From Library Journal
Stressed out? Creativity dead-ended? Need to lose weight or make new friends? Take a hike, in nature or with a hiking club. These West Coast authors enthusiastically describe all the good things a day-hiker may expect from the sport, emphasizing the why, rather than the how, of hiking. Appendixes tell where to find more information on trails and hiking clubs, and are more complete for those on the West Coast than in the Midwest and back East. A desirable purchase if your proselytizing books from the last resurgence of interest in the sport (1970-77) need replacement.?Paula M. Strain, Rockville, Md.

Hiking! celebrates the healing powers of nature by sharing how hiking can transform our lives -- body, mind and spirit. Hiking! unveils the spiritual gifts of hiking as the authors escort us back to our roots in the natural world where the manifold woes of modern urban life simple melt away. Hiking! explores how hiking addressees the issues of strengthening family ties, improves communication, offers a healthy lifestyle for children, pursues an inexpensive pastime, and provides seniors with a natural prescription for health. Readers will learn of a new found freedom from stress and worry, how to increase fitness while doing something with the people they love, restore energy and self-confidence, enjoy romances and friendships formed on the trail, and discover a personal empowering relationship with nature. Exercise is a critically important component of good health, and hiking is one of the least expensive, best forms of prolonged exercise available today. -- Midwest Book Review
