This books left me very satisfied. I received it for a gift. My sister-in-law told me she thought I’d relate to it, being a Polish outdoor type. Yup. Normally, I don’t find reading history interesting, but this thing pulled me in, mostly because it was a familiar back story, one of displacement, of people fleeing the country for their lives, and of contact with the natural world. That’s part of my generation’s Polish heritage. I knew that Heinrich had written about ravens, and that he lived in Maine, but had never checked him out. The writing is flat out brilliant. I see and hear him clearly, and it’s a convincing tale he spins. I am drawn to the book’s imagery of the woods, or jungles, of Bernd running barefoot through the countryside, of living on less, but living well.
In the Path of Young Bulls details a team’s five-month-long stint of daily challenges along the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, one of the USA’s toughest long-distance journeys. The book also serves as a resource for section and long-distance hikers in planning their own CDT adventures, by including daily mileages from starting and ending locations, as well as on-trail reports and conditions for each day’s hike.
