A promise to his brother haunted him for over forty years. Finally, Blanchard set out on the Appalachian Trail with his brother's Purple Heart Medal to fulfill that promise. He learned that the wilderness and solitude can reconnect one with a Norman Rockwell America that at times seems long lost and forgotten. This humorous story demonstrates that adventure truly begins in the heart.
