Its beautifully written and I kept wanting more. All the details throughout the book made me feel as if I was part of them. I could clearly see the images in my head, like a movie.
26 young boys and 6 adult leaders were engaged in a life changing journey where they were taught not to defeat. From Illinois to Florida, they traveled on their bicycles through many states. They all went through obstacles that made them stronger.
Paul Rega is an incredible story teller and I'm anxious to read more of his work. He recently published 12 steps to freedom which is also a great read that offers a life changing plan.
Two thumbs up Mr Rega!
This book is a beautifully-written, inspiring read!
I enjoyed the way the book detailed more than just the actual journey itself and that the fundraising, organization and education was part of the whole coming of age journey. I'm sure many of the boys would have found the whole experience an education in itself.
There are some incredibly difficult and some exciting moments for the group as a whole as well as individual triumphs and hardships along the arduous route. The enormity of the challenge as a whole only sank in about halfway through the book.
This is a long story, written in fabulous detail and all in all this book is a great read.
Trail of 32
This is a story of growing up and being part of the scout movement, 32 boys head out on a 1400 miles cycle trek to Florida. This journey takes them through eight states.
The journey was probably the largest ever undertaken at the time, and must have been one of the greatest achievements of its time.
The journey was in its self an education and in 1972 it was a fantastic thing to have done.
This book is a terrific read and very emotional in bits, it is very well written and I am sure you will enjoy reading it.
4 stars. 17 October 2013 .
This is one amazing story, powerfully written and one that truly touches your heart. Unputdownable and keeps you eagerly turning the pages. I found myself losing track of my own time as I followed this story from page to page and felt like I was on the journey with them all, as it was so beautifully told and very descriptive that anyone reading it will feel as if they are right there.
This story redefines "coming of age" it's simply breathtaking and awe-inspiring. At the finish I could feel the pride that each one of the boys felt. This is one of those rare books that you pick up and you know the words inside the pages will remain with you forever. A story of courage and strength and one that I highly recommend to all, no matter how old or young you may be.
