Skywalker A Proud Second to Cheryl Strayed
Skywalker–Highs and Lows on the Pacific Crest Trail was the top selling book on the Pacific Crest Trail throughout 2011 on Amazon.com. However, that has changed dramatically.
Cheryl Strayed’s blockbuster new bestseller, ‘Wild’, has now soared to the top of the PCT book sales. In fact, her book is now #18 on all of Amazon. Think about that. There are currently 9,000,000 titles listed on Amazon.com. And within two months of her book’s release, she is at #18. Best of all, it is the type of book that will change people’s behavior; probably many of these readers are going to want to hike on this national scenic trail famous for its stunning beauty.
So now Skywalker–Highs and Lows on the Pacific Crest Trail is far behind in second place amongst PCT books. Nonetheless, I couldn’t be more thrilled. Because Mrs. Strayed’s book has created such a tidal wave of interest in the PCT, that my own sales have doubled this year compared to last.
Thank you Cheryl! Good writing and good hiking!
