Book & Movie Reviews

“Life is a great adventure…accept it in such a spirit.” – Teddy Roosevelt

Are you looking for an adventure movie to inspire you to get outdoors? Or perhaps a book about two friends who decide to hike the entire Appalachian Trail?

When I’m not on the trail or writing articles and reviews on this website, I often read adventure books. And I especially like movies with gorgeous scenery of places I’d like to go.

I’ve either read or watched each of the books and movies below, and keep adding more to this list! So keep checking back and if you have a favorite book or video about hiking or adventure, please share it with me! I also keep a book list of the ones I want to read.
