About this title


The author recounts his journey with his nineteen-year-old son on a six-month hike along the Appalachian Trail and recalls how the two came to know each other at a critical point in their lives

From Publishers Weekly:

In 1984, years after deserting his wife and children, the author took his son David, then 19, on a camping trip along the Appalachian Trail. The physically punishing but ultimately rewarding trek lasted six months, as the two covered some 2000 miles of rough up- and downhill ground. Hemphill (The Sixkiller Chronicles, Long Ago describes vivid meetings with other hikers and crises when his injured knees threatened the adventure, as did sudden, sharp quarrels with David. These were resolved, however, and the journey cemented a bond between father and son. Most of the story is exceptionally appealing, but one becomes impatient with its exhaustive details. There is probably more than readers care to know about Hemphill's boozing, failings as a family man, second marriage, daughters and son. Discounting the author's self-involvement, though, the book is an authentic journey of discovery.
