9781449940775: The Walk: Reflections on Life and Faith from the Appalachian Trail

Thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, from Georgia to Maine in one continuous hike, is a life-changing journey fraught with unimaginable obstacles, yet rich in unrivaled rewards. It is also a journey awash with spiritual significance. Using stories from their own 2,175-mile thru-hike, thoughful use of scripture, inspirational quotes, and the wisdom of Native Americans, Randy "Windtalker" Motz, and his wife and hiking partner, Georgia "Mom" Harris, draw the many parallels between walking the trail and a "walk of faith." Focusing on such themes as prayer, perseverance, praise, simplicity and service, Randy and Georgia explain, in unique, entertaining and relevant ways how life on the trail mirrors a Christian life. Hikers who already live a "faith-based" life, will find this book useful as both a devotional, to carry with them for those moments of quiet reflection on the trail, and for providing fresh new perspectives on both faith and life. For those searching for an easier and more relevant way to understand the foundations of a Christian life, be they hiker or not, "The Walk's" backpacking analogies aptly describe how Christian principles were an integral part of daily life on the trail, just as they are off the trail.

From the Author:

The adventure of spending six months thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail was a life-changing experience, an experience that put life into an entirely new perspective. Writing this book was a labor of love, a means by which to communicate the unmistakable spiritual aspects of living in the wilderness we discovered, and re-discovered. The parallels we found between trail life and real life spirituality became indelibly etched in our souls as we hope they will be for you as you read this book.
