Amazon Travel Books Recommends ‘Skywalker–Highs and Lows on the Pacific Crest Trail’.
The Amazon Travel Books Department has recommended the outdoor adventure narrative, Skywalker–Highs and Lows on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), by Bill Walker (‘Skywalker’). This is the story of 6’11” Bill Walker’s turbulent thru-hike of the 2,663 mile Pacific Crest Trail in 2009. Walker lost 43 pounds, but came away enthralled by the extraordinary variety of terrain on the PCT, as well as the colorful cast of characters that make up its trail community. This narrative has sold well from its inception–second only to Cheryl Strayed’s bestseller, ‘Wild–From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail’. It was his second narrative at the time, subsequent to Skywalker–Close Encounters on the Appalachian Trail.
