Lending levity to tragedy, author Rick McKinney loads readers into his backpack for a 2000-mile Appalachian Trail odyssey, dealing a passionate, endorphin-fueled gonzo blow to suicidal thinking. Dead Men is a deeply empathic, unorthodox prescription for a nation depressed. It delivers an endorphin charged blow to a Prozac-dependent world.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book pre-dates Oprah's latest book club selection "Wild" - I highly recommend that anyone who thinks "Wild" is read-worthy, read "Dead Men" first! Highly entertaining, emotional, and captivating, I couldn't put this book down. McKinney's free-thought style of writing makes the reader feel as if he's telling you his story in person. You WANT to meet him, hear him, know him. I only hope he documents and has the opportunity to publish more of his life decisions/adventures.
