Take a hike! Hiking for the Couch Potato: A Guide for the Exercise-Challenged relishes its role as motivator and humorously suggests strategies to get off the couch. Hiking for the Couch Potato gently prods readers to try hiking, advises on hikes and gear, discusses meeting a significant other on the trail, and offers an "Ode to Frozen Green Peas." Recipes, illustrations, and potato information and events add an extra layer of fun to the book. Since it comes from former Couch Potato Shelley Gillespie, Hiking is an authentic experience for anyone who might just want to "Take a hike!"
