Hiking Without Dave is a true account of failure, grief, forgiveness, and healing. When CW Spencer lost his kid brother Dave to suicide, he was devastated. Threatened with unrelenting guilt, he finally made the decision to step out of the dark place in which he found himself and begin his journey of healing. It involved a hike of the entire 1,444 miles of the Buckeye Trail in Ohio over a three-and-a-half-year period, during which time he journaled his experiences and thoughts to Dave. In Hiking Without Dave, CW's journal writings are cleverly intertwined with stories from his 47 years with his brother. Though this book addresses the serious topic of suicide, the reader will find that it also contains many humorous stories and a message of hope.
