The Elephant and I is a refreshing journey on America’s most celebrated hiking trail. It is a captivating story that will be appreciated by both the seasoned outdoor enthusiast and beginning novice alike. The author’s character flaws and failures along with the glorious triumphs are presented in an honest retelling of the harsh realities of trail life. Through the course of nearly six months the friendship of two hikers survives the brutal test of the elements. The Elephant and I gives anyone even remotely interested in The Appalachian Trail a close-up look into hiking, faith and friendship. This is not a philosophical ranting or an enlightening search to find his inner child—nothing of the sort. It is a practical, honest, sometimes funny account of a journey of a lifetime, with the friend of a lifetime, under the care of the God of eternity. (392pp. illus. Masthof Press, 2023.)
