Pittard throws down a very sour gauntlet in his opening "An Apology to Purists" and then proceeds to make many of the lazy errors he complains about complaints about. Talk about getting off on the wrong foot! And true enough, he seems to care little about accuracy of names, locations, numbers, sequences, grammar, spelling, or honesty, and lamely excuses himself on account of the hardships of hiking. If that were valid, no AT author could write a good book, yet many have. Truth be known, quality authorship also comes after the trail. This is especially galling after constant reminders of Pittard's (should I bother spelling his name correctly?) wealth and high-powered position in this or that business or institution. In short, he appears to be in love with himself and his attitude. If you are a die-hard Appalachian Trail reader, you can muddle through this muddled volume and ferret out some quality, but this author makes that your job instead of his. I like to respect an author, his editor, and his publisher. Hard to do when he doesn't respect his consumer. Apparently his version of self-respect does not involve mutual respect.
