A Walk For Sunshine 3rd edition

An entertaining walk along the Appalachian Trail with bears, bugs, blisters, skunk bedmates and hilarious food cravings; all for a noble cause. Outdoorsmen and armchair travelers will enjoy A Walk For Sunshine—critically acclaimed; featured on ESPN and the Hallmark Channel; includes gear lists and hiking tips for the whole family.

Jeff Alt takes you along every step of his 2,160-mile Appalachian Trail adventure filled with humorous, frightening, and inspirational stories including: bears, bugs, blisters, interesting characters, skunk bedmates, mice, and hilarious food cravings; all for a noble cause. Alt walked 5 million steps over rugged mountainous terrain, through freezing temperatures, driving rain, and sunny skies buoyed by the knowledge that his walk was dedicated to his brother who has cerebral palsy. Alt lived in the woods for 147 days, inspiring an annual fundraiser which has raised over $160,000 for the Sunshine Home, where his brother lives.
A Walk For Sunshine is an award-winning, entertaining, armchair adventure full of examples of perseverance, survival, goal-setting success, and overcoming obstacles. Alt’s story sheds light on the pursuit of a simpler life. A Walk For Sunshine will fill readers with inspiration to go after their dreams. Alt includes a chapter with instructions on how to conduct a charity expedition and an epilogue chapter focusing on life lessons he learned from his time on the trail and how he has applied them to his life in the 10 years since his adventure. We hope you will enjoy your hike!
New to this edition: Details about the annual Walk-With-Sunshine that Alt’s adventure inspired; an interesting history on how Sunshine came to be along with a chapter about cerebral palsy—the disorder that affects Alt’s brother, Aaron, for whom Jeff’s journey is dedicated. Alt expands on his Life Lessons from the Trail epilogue that stresses the importance of getting outdoors and including the whole family—especially children—in outdoor activities to foster an appreciation of nature, to nurture the importance of good stewardship of the earth, and to get everyone up and moving for good health. Now, to help individuals and families plan their own fun and safe hiking adventure, Alt has added two practical appendices: 1) Jeff’s Gear List and Thoughts to Consider for a Hike and 2) Gear Ideas and Other Tips for Taking your Children Hiking.

Professional Reviews
The News-Press, FL
Alt reflects on how sleeping with a skunk, being chased by a bear, charged by a bull, blisters, insects, and weird food cravings changed him in profound and positive ways.

Blue Ridge Outdoors

"Alt nails the Trail experience. A WALK FOR SUNSHINE shares top billing on my book list."
