Northbound with Theo: A Man and His Dog Thru-Hike the Appalachian Trail at Ages 75 and 8
2,200 miles, February till October, all sorts of weather! After 46 years as a trial attorney, Soren West and his golden retriever, Theo, set out to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail. Soren loses 30 pounds, has a tooth reset, and his shoulder repaired. But he also meets wild people, unscalable rocks, and night-time frights on this “life-changing adventure,” all the way with Theo!
Author Soren West discovered the woods as both adventure and refuge from a difficult home life as a 12-year-old.
