This is not a book I would have chosen on my own, but my father gave me a copy after he met the author at a speaking engagement. I grew up near Tulsa, OK. My parents still live there, and they are active with many of the same charities supported by Brad Johnson's 'Compassionate Journey.'

It is a good story. Despite my rating of 2 stars, I already know who will get my copy of this book, with a recommendation to read it (she lives in Tulsa, too). Like many memoirs, this book tells the story of what

To hike the entire Appalachian Trail is something that few people can actually do. Most of use can’t take off from our jobs and family responsibilities for 4-6 months to do something like this, yet I do enjoy reading about people who can. Brad Johnson owns his own business and has the means to make this commitment. His memoir is about his journey and how he is raising money for charities. The book is pretty factual about all his experiences on the trail, the sights he sees and the people he meet ...more

This is a very inspiring read. Brad shares his Appalachian Trail journey with his readers. He writes openly about why he hiked the AT, the pitfalls, the good times, the struggles personally and trail wise. As I read I found myself being challenged in my life- not to hike the AT like Brad, but to take on the challenges that I have been putting off in my life- my own personal "AT"! I highly recommend this book to those who are hikers and those who need a little inspiration and go take on that chal ...more

This is the second book I've read about hiking in the past month. I am not usually a hiking kind of person. (For me nature is fine as long as it's only in small doses -like an hour or two.) But after reading these inspirational stories, I can't help but admire those who make a trip like this and learn many things along the way. It really is journey not only on foot but also a journey as person makes to discover new things about your strengths and limitations. You learn to adapt and make do, but ...more
