Purchased this book prior to climbing Mt LeConte in late Spring - June 14th.
It was good preparation for the flora I would encounter as well as the spiritual experience.

wonderful story shows that age doesn't stop everyone. If you never heard of LeConte Lodge, you're in for a special treat.

I had not read any reviews of this book before purchasing it at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park visitors center but when I picked it up and scan through it I knew I had to have it! I myself along with my son are big fans of Mt. LeConte and we have hiked the mountain ourselves several times and plan to do it again at least two more times this summer (if not more).

Normally as I hike the trails I am focused on the scenery in front of and above me. I think the book has opened my eyes to look at what is near my feet also; the flowers and other plant life that make up the edge of the trails. These are things that I rarely pay attention to. However, my next trip will be different as I hike up in May.

To really enjoy this book I think you have to have a love of this mountain. For all you Mt. LeConte lovers, read it! Buy it, check it out at the library, borrow it, however you get your copy, just read it.
