J. Greg Johnson's Sanctuarys in the Smoky Mountains became mine, also, through his marvelous book.....Of his thirty plus chapters defining various hikes and areas in the GSMNP, all of them but two took me longingly back to places I have been and hope to return.

This was clearly an inspired work of love from someone who knows the park very well. Mr. Johnson relates some of his personal successes and struggles to those found on the trails with a deft touch, mixing in humor and faith as needed. He also adds some trail details at the end of the book, if any of the hikes mentioned therein inspire you to follow in his footsteps. Loved this book!

Full disclosure requires that I state that Greg is married to an old and dear friend of my wife and myself.

Buffeted by fate and the random events, sometimes sad and cruel, that can drain life of color and meaning, Greg hikes to find peace and solace.

To paraphrase John Muir, in Wilderness he finds the preservation of his soul.
What he does here is share both the steps his feet took, and stages in his personal journey through a life.

I think anyone who has ever kept a journal would enjoy this book.
