"I am sure about this one. I reviewed many Pacific Crest
Trail travel descriptions, guides and personal accounts, by many authors and in
many occasions I dismissed them as “Billy (authors) Gone on Vacation” or “What
Jane did on her Summer Vacation” type of narrative.
I dismiss Cheryl Strayed “Wild” as brash, rude, arrogant and
incomplete, with no valid descriptions of the trails; Cheryl had never hiked
before and brought no useful information, to make it a valid hiking adventure, however,
the book end up being a best seller--- due to the fantastic publicity, the
movie based on its content received--- but I do not regret or apologize for my
Claire Henley Miller Mile 445 on the other hand, is an
exciting provocative and romantic accounting of her through hiking attempt,
surmounting difficulties and much joy, without the monotonous description of
the trail, step-by-step very common in similar titles." --- Gilberto d'Urso, Mountain N' Air Books
Claire is a English major with a bachelor degree
in writing, 26 years old with a passion for adventure, so I expect to see and
review her future publications.
