on March 16, 2012 :
I'm always interested in reading about hikes, but I can hardly tolerate books that are nothing more than a journal. Of course, that is exactly what the title claims this book to be.
Since I was not familiar with the Dolly Sods, The occasional descriptions of the area and the etymology of the name were interesting. Finally, near the end, the author begins to share more of his thoughts and reactions and less of what time he got up, what the temperature was, and what he ate for breakfast.
However, in the end, I was glad this was a short hike, and thus a short book. But it's only 99 cents... if you are going to hike the Dolly Sods, by all means read it.
