You've never read a thru-hiker memoir such as this. Derick Lugo, a fixture of the New York comedy scene with a job cut short, had never hiked but set out as a young black man with an overweight pack but can-do attitude. (Okay, that part is familiar.)
As it says on the back cover of this 224-page tale, "What follows are lessons on preparation, humility, race relations, and nature’s wild unpredictability. Through it all, Lugo refuses to let any challenge squash his inner Pollyanna, persevering with humor, tenacity, and an unshakeable commitment to grooming that sees him from Georgia to Maine."
"Mr. Fabulous" as a Trail name? You will see why.
