I’ve recently discovered The Mountaineers Books, a small published with a great catalog of books related to outdoor adventures. I just finished reading one of their recent releases, The Pacific Crest Trailside Reader: California, and am itching to hit the trail!
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A great compendium of historical and contemporary accounts of travel along the Pacific Crest Trail in California. The Trailside Reader offers a glimpse of the evolution of the California wilderness through US history and offers glimpses into the modern trail experience and culture. Fair warning, though: reading this book will only feed thru-hiking obsessions, and may result in the planning of extended backpacking trips!
