At age 25, Heather Anderson had reached the so-called "Triple Crown" of backpacking: the Appalachian Trail (AT), the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) and the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) vertical gain of more than a million feet. A few years later, she gave up her job, her marriage and a dissatisfied life and went back to these mountains.
In her new memoir, Thirsty: 2600 miles homeHeather, whose brand name is "Anish," not only conveys her sporty and wild adventures, but also shares her special message of courage – her willingness to turn away from the predictability of a more traditional life, to find out what she most fulfills. Under the rigors of the trail – pain, fear, loneliness and danger – she discovers the greater rewards of community and self, overcomes her doubts and builds trust. Eventually, she realizes that recordings are just a catalyst, indicating their purpose, focus, and goal.
