"The hardest thing about through-hiking the Appalachian Trail is getting to the start."  So begins Trail Ways, Path Wise.  Influenced by the prose of Bukowski and Hemingway (with a smattering of Kerouac, and adoration of Cormac McCarthy), Illig is a former journalist and natural storyteller who writes with a strong voice in a conversational, lyrical style: "Light on his feet, writes with tripping prose,"  says author John Hanson Mitchell.  He will have you flying down the trail, laughing as you go, eager to turn the next page to peek over the next mountaintop and around the bend.  Read TRAIL WAYS, PATH WISE alone, or as Book I in the 8,000-mile AT-PCT-CDT through-hiking trilogy that is:  Trail Ways, Path Wise (AT);  Pacific Dream (PCT);  and Man in the Middle (CDT).  Discover the nuances of America's three marquee hiking trails.  This trilogy is as much self-reflection and journey into maturity as it is a pondering of mountains.
