Ten Million Steps

Ten Million Steps 
    If every journey begins with a single step, the culmination of M. J. Eberhart's would bring that number to an estimated ten million. In January 1998, the retired optometrist from Florida began what would become a historic, 10-month, 4400 mile journey, on foot, from the Florida Keys to Cap Gaspˇ, Quebec. Originally self-published in 2000 as a hardcover and since out of print, Ten Million Steps made Eberhart, known on the trail as "Nimblewill Nomad", a hiking legend. Menasha Ridge Press is proud to reintroduce this vivid and honest account of his celebrated trek to hikers, outdoor enthusiasts and armchair adventurers in a new softcover edition. In his engaging style, Eberhart recounts his days and nights of deep joy, painful, physical hardship and self-discovery on what is now known as the Eastern Continental Trail.

    Written in a vivid journal style, the author unabashedly recounts the good (friendships with other hikers he met), the bad (sore legs, cutting winds and rain), and the godawful (those dispiriting doubts) aspects of his days of walking along what has since become known as the Eastern Continental Trail (ECT). An amazing tale of self-discovery and insight into the magic that reverberates from intense physical exertion and a high goal, Eberhart’s is the only written account of a thru-hike along the ECT. Covering 16 states and 2 Canadian provinces, Ten Million Steps deftly mixes practical considerations of an almost unimaginable undertaking with the author’s trademark humor and philosophical musings.
