A Short Walk to the Edge of Life by Scott Hubbartt

Scott Hubbartt started on a journey in the backcountry canyons in the Andes mountains in Peru. As a military veteran, he thought he had enough experience and stamina to hike the 8 hours to his destination. Dismissing the advice to take a guide and ignoring some other warning signs, he embarks on a journey that nearly costs him his life. What began as an eight hour hike turned into days of becoming hopelessly lost. In his fight to survive, he realizes that he has come to the end of himself and at that point turns to God. The author not only has detailed his physical journey but his spiritual journey as well. This is not a long book and reads more like a journal, but it is engaging and thought provoking. Blogging for Books provided this book to me for free in exchange for an honest review.
