Before he became Green Giant on the Appalachian Trail, Gary Sizer was a Marine, a computer nerd, and a guy with a problem. No matter how much time he spends outside, it's never enough. Whether being thrashed by drill instructors at Parris Island or drenched by a squall in a high tundra, the same calming thought always prevailed: It's good to be outside.
Home is Forward is much more than a collection of travel stories. It answers the question of how someone can go from having a (somewhat) normal life to casting it all aside and wanting to go live in the woods.
Hilarious, poetic and often thoughtful, Home Is Forward is also a story about people. From ancient ruins to frozen volcanos, lessons are learned, friendships are forged, and on top of it all, love blooms.
So if you yearn to visit far-off lands, or simply love a well spun tale, you're in the right place.

The book that will make you want to explore!
From his time in the military, to his trip to Iceland , Gary Sizer captivates the audience and brings you along into his adventures. I was really impressed with Gary's stories and his writing. He was witty and funny and explained his trips in an engaging way where you didn't need to be a hiker in order to understand what he was explaining.
Gary also narrated his book and he had a nice easy flow. His use of accents for other people was spot on and it never felt like he was forcing anything.
I really enjoyed his journey and felt like I was along for the ride. I'm excited to hear about his other adventures in the future and to enjoy another journey with him.
