I had the opportunity to see Reel Rock 13, the Dawn Wall, and Free Solo in theaters and thoroughly enjoyed each of them.

Readers Review: On Trails

November 29, 2017 / Louie Knolle / Book/Movie Reviews

If you’re interested in some natural history, select tales from the AT, a scoop of entomology, a dash of Darwin and Thoreau, all blended together with provocation of how you travel through the wilds and your place in it, then this is definitely not the book for you. (Only kidding!)

Readers Review: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

December 4, 2016 / Louie Knolle / Book/Movie Reviews

I don’t know you reader, but one thing I do know is that you are human. Should I meet you someday, perhaps we will have a nice conversation about some books we have both read. Whether they be travel memoirs, eastern philosophies, metamorphoses inspired by nature, classic literature, or even the standard 14 part fantasy epic, I am always intrigued by the books that end up on my book shelf.

A Walk in the Woods

September 20, 2015 / Bryan Wolf / Book/Movie Reviews

For my enjoyment, but also the sake of a fair review I decided to look at the movie independently. It seems only fair to separate the two, after […]
