"...Beth Alt's husband, Jeff was right: Hiking in California's Sierra Nevada mountain range was just what she needed while grieving the death of her brother...immersed with everything the trail had to offer: the tall pines that stretched to the sky, the still lakes..., snow-forested mountains, the black bear lurking toward her. The black bear lurking toward her?...uplifting and humorous..."--Joe Burris, The Baltimore Sun, (Review from the original paperback, A Hike for Mike)

"...A GREAT DIARY of their trip, in which marathon runner Beth, a camping and hiking novice, encounters bears, lightning and freeze-dried food...sheds light on a common condition affecting millions of Americans..."--Anne Stein, The Chicago Tribune, (Review from the original paperback, A Hike for Mike)
