Appalachian Trail Happiness, the Book
Come take a thousand mile walk with me on the Appalachian Trail.
When I wrote the book I had originally included a glossary, but I incorporated it in the text, a book club I recently met with said it would be helpful so here’s the glossary.
Also, I thought it would beneficial to include some photos from the book here.
What I hope you can get out of this book is a feeling for the Appalachian Trail Community: thru-hikers, hostel owners, trail towns and trail angels who all conspire to make hiking the AT an amazing experience. I knew the community existed, but the positive impact it had on me—the power of this community—completely caught me by surprise, a really pleasant surprise. Sure, there will be a good bit about the trail, the geography, the weather and the mountains, but it’s mostly about the people, the culture and my own twisted brain. The book is drawn out of three things: my journal entries, descriptions and definitions of trail terms, and the writings I undertook while hiking the trail. I also answered three questions every day; what was the most beautiful thing I encountered, what did I learn, what made me happy today?
Amazon & Kindle – You can find both the paperback ($9.99) and ebook ($2.99) at Amazon, if you buy the paperback you get the ebook as a bonus for 99 cents if you are so inclined.
Createspace – If you order through Createspace ($9.99), Amazon doubles my royalty. I’m assuming they do this to help drive traffic to the Createspace store. So if you want to help maximize my royalty this is the best way.
Signed Copy – If you would like a signed copy please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. For these I have to order a copy from Createspace, then sign it and ship it to you directly, due to the double shipping I charge $15 for this option.
No matter how you buy the book, I’m thankful that you have and thank you very much for supporting my work and I hope you enjoy it. A quick synopsis is below. ~ Rev Kane
