Life teaches us lessons no matter which path we choose. As an amateur backpacker, author Roberta Pickett shares some of the lessons she has learned about life along the trails of the Sierras. You will experience backpacking from inside and out: the tired feet, the disciplined preparation, the response to unexpected storms, and the fear of sleeping alone in the vastness of the wilderness. You will rejoice along with Roberta at the sights and smells and glorious beauty of nature in all its aspects. Ultimately, you will sense her connection to something much bigger that permeates her being, as she says, from her soles to her soul.
