In Mountains, Madness, and Miracles the reader will be taken on an emotional roller coaster that is the Appalachian Trail. Just as in life there are peaks and valleys awaiting your journey. Whether you are an armchair reader or planning a hike of the 2,176 mile trail, this book explains in vivid details what it takes to accomplish such a life changing adventure. The pain, the emotions, and the spiritual applications will keep you turning pages. Just when you think the author can't take any more discomfort she turns around and hikes it again in the opposite direction. --Paul Stutzman, author of HIKING THROUGH
I cannot even imagine anyone else who had so many obstacles to encounter than Lauralee and she did it like a champ. You must read this great and inspiring book; it will literally change your life! --Bill Irwin, author of BLIND COURAGE
Bliss shows us that miracles abound in the wilderness. And she demonstrates that following your own path is not as crazy as it may seem. Mountains, Madness, and Miracles proves that every journey is filled with providence and grace if we know where to look for it. --Jennifer Pharr Davis, Author (Becoming Odyssa and Called Again), speaker, and world-record hiker

Most of the way through the book the author is on an emotional roller coaster that bordered on paranoia. If I had been around her she would have worn me out from the emotional highs and lows that were about as frequent as the hills on the AT. She writes very little about the trail's beauty and majesty, the camaraderie at the shelters and the people that she meets; she writes mostly about her emotions. Other than a few individuals she mentions who help her cope with difficulties on the trail other hikers are not mentioned.
I am a Christian but I had to skip portions of the book due to her constant scriptural references that only quoted a portion of a verse thereby taking many of them out of context. I hope that she does not go through life doing the same thing to herself. If she does I can see why she has problems coping. Many things just happen on our journey through life, some good and some bad. I am glad that she looks to God for hope for life, but she just needs to put her big panties on and get on with life.
