Ten Million Steps

Ten Million Steps
M.J. Eberhart


    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 GaspŽ, 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.

Smart and Savvy Hiking: What Every Woman Needs to Know on the Trail
Kim Lipker


    Yes, the world really does need another hiking book—especially Smart & Savvy Hiking: What Every Woman Needs to Know on the Trail. As a young girl growing up in the Colorado mountains, then a hip outdoors writer, and now the mother of three small children, author Kim Lipker has personally faced every question women ask on the trail. Her “girl talk” covers such topics as comfortable and protective fabrics and clothing—all the way down to bras, panties, and socks; on-the-trail toilette; pregnancy hiking; bringing kids along; choosing companions wisely; avoiding violence; and overcoming the fear of getting lost.

    She extends the five senses to seven and shows how to use them to truly experience nature. A special section, “Journaling the Journey,” offers written exercises that turn hiking into personal transformation. And the book’s “Smart & Savvy Life List” showcases vacation-destination trails. Most of the book is geared to day hikes, but “After Sundown” provides great detail for overnight backpacking. Altogether, inside these pages lies a whole new world of safety, pleasure, and reward for novice and seasoned hikers alike. (Men will pick up some tips, too.)

Shipwrecked!
Evan L. Balkan


    If clinging to a sinking makeshift raft while fighting off sword wielding and delirious mutineers desperate to wrench the last cask of water from your sun-scorched hands and arms—as sharks circle in anticipation—is your armchair cup of tea, then Shipwrecked: Deadly Adventures and Disasters at Sea is your next read. An extraordinary collection of human suffering at the hands of cruel oceans, cruel captains, and cruel fate, this latest collection of impeccably researched true adventure by Evan Balkan details the astonishing facts of 14 extraordinary maritime disasters spanning the 17th through 20th centuries. Laced with detail, Balkan's seaworthy narratives redefine the limits of desperation, courage, and the human will to survive in the face of death, or worse.

    Included are such legendary stories as the 1629 maiden voyage of the Batavia that ended in mutiny and murder, and the dramatic destruction of the majestic three-masted barquentine Endurance in ice-clogged Antarctic waters in 1912. A vast spectrum of human emotion and activity is featured in these exciting profiles, from deadly incompetence and brutish cannibalism to surprising self-sacrifice and quiet heroism.

Rowed Trip
Colin and Julie Angus


    From the rugged highlands of Scotland, husband and wife team Julie and Colin Angus rowed more than 7,000 km to Aleppo, Syria in the heart of the Middle East. Their course followed ancient transportation corridors traditionally used for trade and migration. They experienced and learned about the rich cultural tapestry that makes up present-day Europe, while in a manner that promotes environmentally responsible travel.

     Julie and Colin’s journey, completed in September 2008, along the traditional aquatic trading routes without using motors proved to be an ideal way to meet the people and explore the varied landscapes as they paddled through thirteen distinct countries.

    Connecting Scotland and Syria with a human-powered voyage also had a personal significance for the couple. Colin’s mother and father both hail from northern Scotland and Julie’s father is from Syria. The journey allowed the couple to explore their family histories. In an age where globalization and cultural integration is the norm, the journey allowed the duo to reflect on their origins and unravel the events that led to their union in western Canada.

    Two amphibious rowboats were constructed for the journey. The vessels each carry a bicycle and trailer which allowed them to travel on roads and bicycle paths as well as water.

    Route of Journey: From Dunnet Head at the northern tip of Scotland, the couple paddled along the coasts and through canal systems to southern England. Here they crossed the English Channel and continued into central Europe via the Rhine River. They reached the headwaters of the Danube River through a canal system and followed through Eastern Europe to the Black Sea. From here the team entered the Mediterranean through Turkey and continued to Syria.

Peaceful Places: Washington, D.C

Peaceful Places: Washington, D.C
Denis Collins and Judy Colbert


120 Tranquil Sites in the Nation's Capital and Beyond

Native Washingtonians Judy Colbert and Denis Collins have grown up and lived amid some of the most exciting sightseeing in the country--in their own grand urban backyard. They share this knowledge in Peaceful Places: Washington, DC. Now readers can enjoy the sights without being elbow-to-elbow with visitors from around the country and the world. Their diverse peaceful "finds" unfold in 12 categories of tranquil spots: Day Trips & Overnights, Enchanting Walks, Historic Sites, Museums & Galleries, Outdoor Habitats, Parks and Gardens, Quiet Tables, Reading Rooms, Scenic Vistas, Shops & Services, Spiritual Enclaves, and Urban Surprises. Readers will find places that please the senses of smell, touch, hearing, sight, and taste. 

In addition to the beautifully written site descriptions, the concise entries also include vital information such as locations for the nearest Metro stations or local parking facilities, admission charges (and any free times), and operating hours. Plus, the authors provide a “peacefulness rating” based on three criteria: always peaceful, usually quite tranquil, or peaceful during the times or seasons specified in the peaceful place entry description. 

The entries are arranged three ways: alphabetically by name; by category (see all 12 listed above); and by area (keyed to the guidebook's maps). That is so readers can pick a quiet spot according to interest, mood, and location. Although most of the attractions are in the downtown, National Mall, and northwest sections of Washington, many escapes are located beyond those perimeters and on into Northern Virginia and Suburban Maryland. 

Peaceful Places: Washington, DC is not a coffee-table book. It’s one to keep in the car, the briefcase, the backpack, or the purse. Whether the reader is a native, who has lived in D.C. long enough to be considered a native, or is a visitor with only a few hours between business meetings or a hectic tourist schedule, this book will be a treasured asset.
