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.

Beyond the Horizon
Colin and Julie Angus


    Colin Angus began his quest to circumnavigate the Earth under his own power in Canada in June 2004. His 720 day journey took him through Alaska, across the Bering Sea, through Europe from Moscow to Portugal, across the Atlantic to Costa Rica, and then back to Vancouver. While facing the relentless cold of the Siberian winter, Angus battled an even greater danger—the steadily mounting rift between himself and expedition partner Tim. Ending the fateful pairing mid-Russia, Angus plowed forward now competing with his friend-turned-foe to be the first to finish a human-powered journey around the globe.

    Without skipping a beat, Angus’s fortunes turned golden when his fiancée Julie Wafaei agreed to complete the journey with him. Together they rowed through the fiercest hurricane season of modern history, narrowly escaping death, arriving shaken and stirred, but alive in the Costa Rican port of Limon, where they began the long final push toward home. This is a book about strength, not only physical but of character as well. With a powerful message of energy conservation paired with a thirst for life, Beyond the Horizon is a non-stop feast of wow and wonder that packs a flurry of punches page after page.

Dream Hikes Coast to Coast

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.
