Product Details

There really is something about that Appalachian Trail. It is America’s trail. Each year millions, upon millions of Americans (and not a few foreigners) take to its wooded, hilly confines. Another thing people do en masse is read books on this great national scenic trail. Skywalker–Close Encounters on the Appalachian Trail, Bill Walker’s irreverent account of his thru-hike of the AT, is selling better than ever. Pictured above are the latest stats showing this narrative is an Amazon Kindle #1 rated book in Sports, Outdoors, Hiking and Camping. Today it is even ranked higher on Kindle than Bill Bryson’s renowned narrative, ‘A Walk in the Woods’.

What is the secret to this book’s continued success? “Most hiking narratives are written by experts, for other experts, in a kind of narrow ‘hikerese’. This book is written by anything other than an expert. But not having a hiker’s ego has allowed me to tell it exactly the way I saw it unfold.”
