Free Amazon Kindle Upload of Skywalker–Close Encounters on the Appalachian Trail
Skywalker–Close Encounters on the Appalachian Trail will be eligible for a free upload on Amazon Kindle for Monday and Tuesday, January 21, 22, 2013. This popular trail narrative tells the story of 6’11” Bill Walker’s (Skywalker) 2005 thru-hike of the 2,175 mile Appalachian Trail (AT). Walker had developed a virtual obsession with thru-hiking the AT, despite never having spent a single night outdoors. What followed was a 171 day struggle that seemed like a battle between his determination on the one hand, and incompetence on the other. Also, the reader will get a feel for America’s trail of the masses, the Appalachian Trail, along with the colorful personalities that dot its pristine environs each and every year.
