An avid hiker, Juliet Croce married fellow hiker Nick Desimone - and lost him in a trail accident after only a year of marriage. She's beaten herself up emotionally for the last three years for not being there with him, the man she knew was the love of her life. Now she has a chance to travel back in time to that fatal day, and try to save him. The hitch? Since she was already alive in that time, she can only be present as a disembodied spirit, with nothing more than the strength of her will and the power of her love to help her influence the course of events. Juliet doesn't foresee that as an invisible watcher, she may meet a side of Nick she never knew...and that in her wild journey back and forth across time, she may discover the man is who really is the love of her life - of her many lives. 1.

In 36 thrilling days, Melanie Radzicki McManus hiked 1,100 miles around Wisconsin, landing her in the elite group of Ice Age Trail thru-hikers known as the Thousand-Milers. In prose that's alternately harrowing and humorous, Thousand-Miler takes you with her through Wisconsin's forests, prairies, wetlands, and farms, past the geologic wonders carved by long-ago glaciers, and into the neighborhood bars and gathering places of far-flung small towns. Follow along as she worries about wildlife encounters, wonders if her injured feet will ever recover, and searches for an elusive fellow hiker known as Papa Bear. Woven throughout her account are details of the history of the still-developing Ice Age Trail - one of just 11 National Scenic Trails - and helpful insight and strategies for undertaking a successful thru-hike. In addition to chronicling McManus's hike, Thousand-Miler also includes the little-told story of the Ice Age Trail's first-ever thru-hiker Jim Staudacher, an account of the record-breaking thru-run of ultrarunner Jason Dorgan, the experiences of a young combat veteran who embarked on her thru-hike as a way to ease back into civilian life, and other fascinating tales from the trail. 1.

I was diagnosed with high blood pressure, borderline diabetes, obesity, and being overweight. I lived a busy life, and I didn't have a lot of money. Taking the time to follow a strict diet and exercise routine or paying out a lot of money for a gym membership or personal training was out of the question. At first, I tried training for a marathon as my younger brother Bobby was a cross country marathon runner. But after the second day with him, I realized that my body was not fit for marathon practice. Bobby's coach then told me about hiking, and since he was an avid hiker himself, he took me on two hiking trips, and I was hooked. That was 12 years ago. Fast forward to the present, I now am an experienced long-distance hiker. I have traveled and hiked in over 17 countries. I no longer have diabetes or high blood pressure. I am also a certified hiking coach for people with diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. I teach and promote family hiking where a family with kids of any ages can go for a hike as a mini-camping trip and have a fun time. I wrote this guide for people who are looking to get into shape while enjoying their time outdoors, especially with their family and kids. Think of hiking as a mini-camping trip where you get to enjoy the beautiful nature while getting into shape and spending quality time with your family. 1. Language: English.
