Hiking Through

One man’s journey to peace and freedom on the Appalachian Trail

Hiking Through

After Paul Stutzman lost his wife to cancer, he sensed a tug on his heart—the call to a challenge, the call to pursue a dream. With a mixture of dread and determination, Paul left his job, traveled to Georgia, and took his first steps on the 2,176-mile Appalachian Trail. What he learned during the next four and a half months brought healing of his grief, bestowed a new freedom, and changed his life.
