#5 - On The Beaten Path

I love the outdoors. I grew up camping and fishing and my parents instilled in me a true respect and unbelievable appreciation for what they can offer. I've become very interested in hiking/backpacking and a personal life goal of mine is to "thru-hike" the Appalachian Trail... the AT. On The Beaten Path follows one man's journey to get his life back into alignment by taking on the challenge of the AT. Unfortunately the writing style becomes very formulaic and never really digs into the meat of any particular subject. It does offer a glimpse into his life, his struggles, and characters and events along the way, but ultimately falls short. Not Recommended.
