Our book hit stores today – event details announced

Our new coffee-table book, The Pacific Crest Trail: Exploring America’s Wilderness Trail, hits stores today! We’re thrilled to have had the opportunity to tell this amazing and important story about the trail’s history and to work with so many amazing photographers.

Special thanks to Cheryl Strayed for her inspiring foreward.

We’ve planned a number of speaking engagements where you can ask questions, learn more about the book and the PCTA, and get your copies signed.

If you want to purchase a copy of the book, you can do it online. Proceeds will go to help us take care of the trail.
