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.

Dream Hikes Coast to Coast
Jack Bennett


    Dream Hikes Coast to Coast has been years in the making. Jack Bennett, in his extensive travels throughout America, has always wondered which hikes were the very best our country had to offer. So in April of 2000, he began his quest to identify and hike the finest hikes in America. He sent out hundreds of surveys, conducted on-line forums, and carefully compiled the results. He then traveled the breadth of America to hike and qualify the hikes that had been proposed. Sometimes the hikes met expectations, and sometimes they did not. After seven years and thousands of miles of travel, Bennett narrowed the list to 30. What qualifies a hike to be one of America's "best"?

    Each hike in this book follows a maintained, or at least well-established trail, each is non-technical, and although some are long, each can be achieved in a single day. But much more than this, each hike is significant in its beauty or its impact. In a word, each hike is in some way memorable. The author shares with the reader the intimate details of each hike, not just routine directions and statistics, but how the hike looked and felt; what weather and animals were encountered; the emotional impact of every event and panorama. Each hike is accompanied by a map that shows the trailhead, route, significant features, and topographic landmarks.

    Key points along the way are located. Weather, native wildlife, camping, lodging, fees, and contact information are presented for each hike. The book also includes valuable advice and information about hike preparation and safety, how to plan for weather extremes, animal encounters, accidents, stream crossings, fatigue and other factors.

Alaska River Guide

Alaska River Guide
Karen Jettmar


    The rich tapestry of Alaska is threaded together by 365,000 miles of waterways, from cascading mountain streams to meandering valley rivers, from the meltwaters of glaciers to broad rivers that empty into the sea. These waterways run deep in the fabric of Alaskan life, providing means of communication, nutrition, and transport for plants, animals, and people.
 
    Highly sought after by Alaska river runners, The Alaska River Guide is the premier guide to Alaskan paddling. Karen Jettmar's insightful narrative combined with detailed river maps, photographs, and crucial at-a-glance information provides readers with the knowledge they need to plan a successful Alaska river trip. Details such as cautions to river hazards, prime paddling season, directions to river access points, and summaries of fish and wildlife encountered round out this one-of-a-kind guide.

     This book profiles a wide variety of rivers from all over Alaska, concentrating mainly on trips for intermediate boaters—those who have run Class I and II rivers with proficiency and who possess good wilderness camping skills. Some are good day trips; others involve major expedition planning. Most of the river trips described here are not high-speed experiences requiring helmets, wet suits, and sleek poly playboats—but several are. Some of the rivers are easily accessible by road and offer exciting whitewater runs (Gulkana River, Nenana River, Eagle River). On many of the rivers you can join tours, whether for an hour or for a month. The author looks at rivers as avenues to fine wilderness country and at boats as transportation rather than tools for surviving Class IV rapids.
   
    In writing this guidebook the author tried to not steal away the elements of surprise and adventure that people seek on a wilderness trip. Alaska's remoteness and size still offer plenty of both. The goal is to provide enough information to help you prepare for a trip, without spoiling your sense of discovery. At the same time, writing about an area inherently invites people to it and possibly makes it more popular. None of the rivers described in this guide is unknown, and some are already quite popular. The agencies that manage river areas can provide additional information on the places you plan to visit. (There's a listing of land managers at the back of this book.)
 
    River ratings and other information in this book provide guidance, but keep in mind that rivers are dynamic: they swell with snowmelt and rain, and they change course over time. For a particular river, use your best judgment in determining whether you have the boating and wilderness skills required. Factor in the river's remoteness and coldness, and the difficulty of being rescued, and then decide on the river for you.

Spokesman-Review (Spokane, WA), August 2008
The book has just been revised, "maintaining its standing as an essential trip-planning resource for adventurers planning paddling or rafting trips in the Last Frontier. . . . The trip-planning information at the front of the book . . . has saved bush travelers tons of grief since the first version of the book came out in 1993."
