In 2003, software engineer David Miller left his job, family, and friends to hike 2,172 miles of the Appalachian Trail. AWOL on the Appalachian Trail is Miller’s account of this hike from Georgia to Maine. Listeners are treated to rich descriptions of the Appalachian Mountains, the isolation and reverie, the inspiration that fueled his quest, and the rewards of taking a less conventional path through life. While this book abounds with introspection and perseverance, it also provides useful passages about hiking gear and planning. This is not merely a travel guide; it is a beautifully written and highly personal view into one man’s journey and the insights gained by abandoning what is comfortable and routine.

    " If you are looking for a meaningful, insightful memoir about thru hiking, this isn't it. If you are looking for a trail journal that starts to sound suspiciously like a guidebook (oh, look at that, Mr. Miller now writes the trail guidebook, how interesting...) then you have come to the right place. I kept expecting some kind of big revelation of self and sense of purpose and never found it. In fairness to the author, I think he was expecting this as well and never found it on the trail. Not a terrible read, but not quite was I was looking for either. "

    " Realistic memoir about thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. Miller gives readers the good and the bad. It really made me want to hit the trails. "

    " This was an interesting enough book of a man who hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2004. It's more of a diary then an action or adventure story. Not a lot happens, besides walking, walking, and more walking. But it kept my interest, and confirmed my belief that I will never do the AT myself. ;-) "
