View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This is a compelling story of a historical family event. Three generations participated in one man's 3,800 mile walk along North America's Continental Divide from Mexico to Jasper, Alberta, Canada. Richard and Gaila Mallery tell the story from the dual perspective of the backcountry and the frontcountry. Most long-distance hikers leave their families for months to pursue their passion for the trail. This is a story of how one family took a different path one that allowed them to enjoy the adventure together. Crossing the Divide is not just a journey through a geographical area on foot, through some of the most spectacular country in North America, it is a journey that crosses many divides. A long trek is much more than distance on the ground; it is also a walk into time. You learn where months of walking take you mentally as well as physically. This book will allow you to explore the perception of distance as a foot traveler. The physical uncertainties of wilderness travel make you spiritually receptive and prompt you to listen to something beyond yourself. Unlike North America's other long trails, the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail is still a work in progress. Readers will find the experiences of the Mallery Family during their journey, appealing, uplifting and entertaining.
