A beautiful, sensitive book Jun 7, 2005
This is a wonderful adventure account of a walk from Mexico to Canada along the Pacific trail. But it is much more. It is also a tender love story, and the difficult search of a sensitive soul for personal peace and tranquility that he hopes to find in the wilderness..
Pacific Dream May 6, 2005
A number of years back I read Trail Ways, Path Wise, which I completely enjoyed. When I found out about Pacific Dream, I had to read it. I really felt like I had done the Hike with John, and the best part was that I never even got a blister! In this book John discussed his difficult relationship and exposed his inner thoughts and emotions with such candor and humor. Everything about the book was crystal clear; from his descriptions of the scenery surrounding him to his many thoughts and revelations. It really was not only an adventure book, it was also a love story which leaves you wondering about his future.
AN ARMCHAIR ADVENTURE Apr 20, 2005
This book is for the rest of us. Okay, so we can't walk across America. We can still feel it, see it, smell it, understand it. That's what this journal, written as simply and powerfully as any literary stylist might. The writer is flawed but so completely honest about himself that we can't help but like him. And we know we can trust him too, and that is what makes this narrative so enthralling. I walked the Pacific Crest Trail with John when I read this, and all I missed out on were the stress fractures.
