Five-Star Trails: The Ozarks

5-Star Ozarks cover

Five-Star Trails: The Ozarks, is now available. After the final submission, I told editor Tim Jackson and managing editor Holly Cross that I loved every part of working on this and I look forward to sharing some special trails with readers for years to come.

If you see us on the trail, I’ll have Hiker-dog’s paw print on a bookmark for your copy of The Ozarks.

You may order the book at or Barnes & Nobel or, come to one of our book signings.

Go to my Amazon author page for updates on book signings and presentations. I’m receiving positive feedback from early users of the book. Nice ego booster, but I’ll stay humble. Trying to keep up with Hiker-dog will do that for you:) Please share the following web address with your hiking friends.
