Item description for A Walk Atop America by Douglas Butler...

In A Walk Atop America, Douglas Butler chronicles his quest to scale the highest geographical point in each of the 50 United States. Some state summits were easy Florida's highest point is a 345-foot-high sandy knoll; Delaware's is a suburban intersection. Other peaks tested Butler's stamina and resolve. California's Mt Whitney required a 22-mile hike. To reach the top of Alaska's Mt. McKinley, Butler endured Arctic storms and minus 20-degree temperatures. Throughout this book, Butler intersperses climbing narratives with the tales of the places he visited and the people he met.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Walk Atop America?

Just read it. Enjoy.  Oct 31, 2007
Is it worth a read? Indeed it is! I am glad I read it and feel enriched. A man shares his life with us as he journeys throughout the 50 states achieving his dream. From the moment the emergency room doors close behind the author, we are completely engaged in his struggles to reach a summit. We meet diverse people as we travel and review some of our historical highpoints and low points, adventure, suspense, poignancy, fine descriptive details and magnificent views. Just read it. Enjoy.

What an exciting read! Doug Butler has lived many peoples' ultimate adventure and fantasy for them. And he's written about it so well you feel like you're right beside him through hair raising ice climbing, threatening weather, tortureous decision making, well earned victory and occasional defeat. I like his modest approach and humor and his sharing of nature, the country and people and cultures along the way. He's sure solved my Christmas shopping problem for guys and other friends on my list this year.
