Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wanted to visit Machu Picchu, or witness the Northern Lights? To explore remote landscapes where no boot has tread, no shutter ever snapped? You can....
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.

A pleasant surprise

I enjoyed this anthology of adventures. It made for pleasurable listening in the car. I do have one criticism, albeit a minor one: he consistently mispronounces Newfoundland. Surely if Sizer spent that much time there he must have been politely informed, at least once, that it is NewfoundLAND not Newfndlnd, as he says, over and over.
