What People are saying about this

No one treats trails with such imagination as Hiker Mike.

Meet the Author

Actor, writer and broadcaster, Mike Kirby continues his quest for the "geographical cure." From the jungles of Belize, the Yucatan and downtown Toronto, to the mountains and rainforests of Tobago, Grenada and Canada's west coast, to the high kingdoms of Nepal, Tibet and the Niagara Escarpment, Hiker Mike hits the trail to adventure with a boyish excitement belying his actual boomerish age. He can be heard enthusiastically reporting his own "call of the wild" hikes weekend mornings on CFRB AM1010, Toronto.
