This true account of Bill Irwin's nearly impossible journey along the Appalachian Trail is as inspiring as a story can get. Not only is Irwin blind, but his life before this incredible trek was as rocky as the route itself. Accompanied by his seeing-eye dog, Orient, Irwin overcomes his personal obstacles and the ominous trail. This transformed hiker has inspired many. Douglas Rowe's no-nonsense approach to this reading is just the ticket. His interpretation captures the heart of this "tough guy" and reveals it to the listener. Irwin's transformation from a lonely bitter alcoholic to a man of strength and courage is reflected in Rowe's sincere performance. B.J.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 95]
