I found the book to be a very good read and I enjoyed it immensely. It was surprising and rewarding to see that at a very early age he had discovered many of the same things that took me over 50 years to realize.
I can highly recommend this book to those who ever wished at some point they had taken the other path – and also to those contemplating undertaking any significant challenge in their lives. As it appears young Kyle has learned, it’s not only about the trail.
The Mayor's most personal, and profound observations, scattered throughout the book, and basically the underlying theme of the book, are summed up nicely at the end - "Human life is fleeting, and in the grand scheme of the universe, our existence doesn't even register. We have a short time with which to make the most of our lives...Learn to slow down and recognize more of these seemingly insignificant instances that are buried throughout the chaos of our lives, and you might find that extra bit of peace and happiness we are all searching for...". Right on, hiker brother! The highlights of life are truly found in the minutiae, the details. Hiking, which humbles a person down to his/her very basic human essence, opens the door to this realization. Kyle expresses this so well without glitz, fanfare or braggadocio. This is not only a story of a thru-hike, but a tale of the human spirit...the common denominator in us all. It's all about perspective, hiking and life in general. A must read for anyone, hiker and non-hiker alike.
