“The best that can happen is to fulfill the dreams of one’s youth.” – Willa Cather. “Uh huh. Ever actually, like, try it?” – Kathleen Schmitt. A lame joke over the farm breakfast table just after high school turns into Kathleen’s decision to ride a horse from coast to coast. It took a few years to assemble ‘The Trekkers’ – a national champion trail horse to ride, a half-broke half-bred as a pack horse, a protection-trained Boxer dog, and a post-college Kathleen. This solo adventure travel memoir recounts the characters and challenges met along the road for each of The Trekkers, and also recounts preparing for The Trek and how The Trek impacted Kathleen’s later life. Humor, insights, the occasional rant, a few slides into fiction, and one moment of real terror, Kathleen invites you to come along on one life adventure that, as all adventures do, leads to another.
