I was pleased when Tanya, with Menasha Ridge Press, contacted me several months ago to say that my book would be included on the 2017 Arkansas Gems List poster. I never dreamed the poster would be so beautiful!
It pleased me to see Hiker-dog resting on a high bluff over the Current River in Missouri. On that fall day as we hiked the Ozark Trail, I couldn’t have imagined that the work giving us such pleasure would someday be shared with a full room at the Arkansas Literary Festival. Having this book appear on The 2017 Arkansas Gems List was icing on the cake!
I’m looking forward to sharing slideshows and trail talks at the following events. Please spread the word!
Sunday, September 24 at 2 p.m. Hobbs State Park in Rogers, Arkansas – I’ll be sharing strategies for completing the John Muir Trail and packing hints as well as photos. I’ll also share an over view of Five Star Trails: The Ozarks complete with photos and a few stories along the way. Book signing will follow.
Friday, September 29 at 7:00 p.m. Springfield Conservation Nature Center in Springfield, Missouri – I’ll be sharing the John Muir Trail and The Ozarks in words and photos. Book signing will follow.
Saturday, October 21 time TBA Backpacking Arkansas Gathering at Shady Lake Campground in the Ouachita Mountains – Sharing strategies for completing the John Muir Trail, packing hints, and High Sierras photos. I’ll also share an overview of Five Star Trails: The Ozarks. Hiker-dog will attend this event that includes a variety of sessions and some time on the trails. Lots of cool door prizes at this event! Make a weekend of it at the beautiful Shady Lake Campground.
