PRELIMINARY REMARK AND INTRODUCTION OF BRANDON WILSON
(by Enea Fiorentini)
Like already said many times over, I do not know Brandon personally, even if I have seen
many photos on its web site, and on the other "forum" wich speak about him.
I have published some Brandons photos on my (this) web site, photos than he has kindly
sent to me, on many paths of faith of average world, alone or with its wife Cheryl.
I have read with admiration the long list of its experiences on the web
site of "Pilgrim's Tales":
where its last book-guide and the relative book reviews are introduced.
Some day ago (the october, 12nd, 2010), I have received a new message from him,
in which he said that he had completed the writing of its last book (the 4th) of trekking
and adventures around the world.
This time, it is the story of its experiences, and those of Cheryl that has accompanied Brandon,
in the long way on the European "Via Alpina".
A long travel, full load of problems and uneasiness, but also rich of beautifulst
experiences and great panoramas, that it has involved the crossing of mountains of all the
alpine arc: from Trieste till Montecarlo, for a distance of 1900 km and with overcoming of
an unevenness of more than 211,000 meters: equivalent to the climb of 12 Mont Everest, as
Here, I have inserted the link towards two pages that contain a short comment of Brandon
on its experience and where is the information to its last book that speaks about the trekking
on the Via Alpina, with the title:
"Over the Top & Back Again: Hiking X the Alps"
(in italian: "Oltre la Cresta & Ritorno: Trekking attraverso le Alpi").
I have created a pair of pages, in English with its comment and in Italian with my
translation of its text, in order to offer a greater comfort to the Italian readers.
Who wants to keep itself informed on this last enterprise of Brandon, can read the
information on the section of its site, at the address:
To all the visitors of these pages, I say a Good Reading.
