"As Tolkien said, not all who wander are lost. Alan Cook is a walker who is always on the Road to Somewhere. (He)
inspires us walkers to get moving on our own adventures. My chief reaction to the book is jealousy. I want to lace up
my walking shoes and go exploring."
--Wendy Bumgardner, Walking Guide at Walking.About.Com

"Your book helps to awaken our spirit and remind us that there definitely can be joy in something we routinely do."
