What I enjoyed most, though, was the respect the writer showed for people and animals, giving them the dignity they deserve. He admitted to shedding tears at times for some of the living creatures who crossed his path and met their end.
His writing reminded me of James Herriot, who in his books, likewise showed respect for both the people and the animals he encountered.
I also appreciated that the writer did not include details on sexual encounters and swear words were minimal.
Anyone who ever imagined taking off on a horse for parts unknown, outdoor lovers, or even people like me who prefer to read about adventures rather than take off on them, would enjoy this book.
The author would write about the realities of the trail in one chapter and then cover his own perceptions in the next. This wasn't a formula for the book, but it seemed to happen a lot... and there were places in the book where I became geographically and chronologically confused because of this. But this was nowhere near to being a problem for me.
The one disappointment I ended up with was that this story took place in the 1970s. Although John is with us to tell the story, Gizmo has passed on. And it's sad to think I can't find this wonderful horse, give him a hug and a Snickers. Read this book. You'll want to do the same.
