Highlights of her outdoor adventures include Girl Scouting, which provided yearly training in camp skills, the opportunity to engage in a 10-day canoe trip, and numerous short backpacking excursions. She was selected to attend the 1965 Senior Scout Roundup in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, an international event to which 10,000 girls were invited. She has ridden a bicycle from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean in 1986, and on August 3, 2010 became the first woman to complete the North Country National Scenic Trail on foot.

This is the first story I've read of Joan's and I really enjoyed it, especially the surprise ending. I kept wondering where it was going the whole time I was reading it. I definately will read more of her books.

I loved Toby & Harry! I've had 5 children and Joan fleshed out Toby so well I could actually visualize this little fellow and his experiences easily. As in true Joan Young fashion, I never saw the ending coming quite the way Joan twisted it. I read a lot of books and have few authors on my list of "exceptional". An exceptional author in my mind is one who has the ability to create a zig in their story when I was positive it was heading for a zag. I count Joan among this very elite group of authors whose books I love and whose writing I anxiously wait for more of.

I've also read her non-fiction work which I also highly recommend, particularly for the Hiker, Devotion for Hikers (https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/22779)and Get off the Couch with Joan (https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/22861). Her fiction work, News from Dead Mule Swamp (https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/109601) is also a fabulous read and I'm anxious to see where the next book in that series takes me.

If you haven't read a Joan Young book yet, all I can say is, you MUST!

I'm new to this ebook thing, so I wasn't sure what to expect. When I heard about Toby & Harry, I knew it was time to give it a try.
Not every writer can master the short story, but Joan Young did a great job in fleshing out the characters and rounding out the plot. And as for Toby? Well, let's just say I can relate to his poor mother.

I'm looking forward to reading more from this author!
