Overview

A laugh-out-loud backpacking story about a whiskey-drinking, blue-collar kid from the flatlands of Cleveland, Ohio who gets it into his head that he wants to be a mountain man.

Beginning in 1977, the book follows Johnny Rez and a cast of quirky companions through fourteen rollicking adventures in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

Along the way, Johnny tangles with hungry bears, raging white water, sultry Southern women, a host of cops and rangers, and even a creature called a "snot otter".

The story culminates with a series of attempts to climb the most elusive Smoky Mountain of all, Mount Guyot (pronounced "GEE-oh"), where few people ever set foot.

After three decades of booze, dope, and broken dreams, can a newly-sober John Reznick finally find Mount Guyot and claw his way to the top?

The years are working against him, but faith and love are on his side...

Praise for Finding Mount Guyot:

"A novel that is part societal dissection, part fairy tale, part bildungsroman, part love story. IT'S UNLIKE ANYTHING YOU'LL EVER READ."

"I did NOT want Mount Guyot to be found as I wanted the search to go on, and on, and on!"

"Wonderful story that I couldn't put down."

"Plenty of laugh out loud moments that kept me coming back for more!"

"Read it in a weekend and wish there were more coming..."

"I have never before been so captivated by any book."

"Lots of laughs, and it made me remember some of the crazy things my friends and I used to do."

    I have never before been so captivated by any book. Often laughing out loud, I could not set my nook down! The author recounts a number of excursions with his bigger-balls-than-brains buddies, women, and the mountains that have remained the one constant in his life. After finishing the book I'm left with my own desire to hit the back-country in search of answers to life's mysteries, an inner peace, and set my boots in my fathers footprints in the Great Smoky Mountains.
