Hiking the Continental Divide Trail

One Woman's Journey

What readers have to say...

"Hiking the Continental Divide Trail: One Woman's Journey recount's the author's flip-flop hike in 1997.  The passage of time has seen many improvements in the route as well as the information available to trail users; and today's traveler will not be quite so alone.  Yet, despite these changes, the themes of water, weather, physical challenge, and motivation are as true now as they were a dozen years ago.  Jennifer's story is a good read and a rewarding introduction for anyone considering a venture on the CDT."

“Hiking the Continental Divide Trail: One Woman's Journey is not only the story of Jen's journey but a push for me to look around and appreciate everything... to encourage me in my dreams and my everyday living... to not be afraid to take that first step in the direction I want to head.”

"Written from the heart.  An important read before taking on the CDT."

"What a treat!  As a fellow hiker I found  myself continually transported, thrilled, and eager to read of each new challenge and obstacle Jennifer faced on her incredible  journey. As a fellow human being, I was inspired by her passion, her courage in the face of fear and loss, and her tenacious drive to realize a long-held dream. This is truly a triumph of the human spirit."

"I just finished reading your book.  Wow, I'm inspired!  Maybe not to hike the CDT but to get out and spend more time in nature.  I looked at my husband and said, we need to go camping!"
