A great story of love and adventure on the pacific cost trail.  Gail Storey is a great writer who make this a fun and fast read.  Boomers and those who love outdoor activities will relate to this couples challenges and the love the found for each other and nature.  Once you start the book it is hard to put it down.   I strongly recommend this book.

A very good, but not super great read. I enjoyed it because I am a long distance backpacker and have hiked some of the same parts of the PCT. Gail Story writes well, but didn't have as compelling a story as Cheryl Strayed did in Wild. It is a quick read and fun for people who have done or are considering a long distance hike.

Can' t anyone write a book about the PCT without using the f-word?!

** spoiler alert ** What an adventure it was, accompanying this undaunted couple on their incredible journey. Storey chronicles their progress with wonderful attention to physical detail (accidental immersions in rapids,tumbles into thickets of tree roots, boots trapped in ice) and generous doses of self-deprecating humor. But while there is plenty to laugh about, the story is not short on moving introspection and challenges the trail presents to the couple's marriage. Storey gamely proceeds along the Pacific Coast Trail while simultaneously traversing the slippery slope of her relationship with her mother, who is battling breast cancer as her daughter takes on Mother Nature. Storey's journey, initially charted to progress from one US border to the other,takes a sharp detour to Boston when her mother's cancer metastasizes. She may not accomplish her initial goal--to traverse the entire PCT with her husband--but she's there for him at the end, just as she's there for her mother.
