Thousand-Miler weaves together practical advice, hiker profiles and cultural tales the author collected while setting a record for completing the more than 1,000-mile Ice Age National Scenic Trail across Wisconsin in 36 days. The most touching chapter features veterans and the emotional need to "walk off the war" before transitioning back to home life. (Minneapolis Star Tribune "Great Cabin Reads" June 9, 2017)
