Editorial Reviews


At turns humorous and philosophical, 'No Way' Ray's account of his journey on the PCT is peppered with anecdotes of the natural and human history surrounding this magnificent trail. Ray's on trail musings offer insight into the mind of a solo thru-hiker, and a glimpse at the essence of the trail that has transfixed so many people. --Liz Bergeron, Executive Director, Pacific Crest Trail Association

Whimsical, mystical, educational, introspective and at times laugh out loud funny, 'No Way' Ray's A Thru-Hiker's Heart is a great read for anyone who loves the outdoors in general and long-distance hiking in particular. Highly recommended. --Scott Herriot, Director of Walk, Still Walking and Even More Walking documentaries
