9780847849765: The Pacific Crest Trail: Exploring America's Wilderness Trail

Following the successful The Appalachian Trail, and New York Times bestseller America's Great Hiking Trails, this is the official book on one of America's most iconic hiking trails, and is published in conjunction with the Pacific Crest Trail Association. With a foreword by Cheryl Strayed, maps, rarely seen archival photos and historical ephemera, and stunning contemporary photography, this photo- and information-packed book is an inspirational bucket list for everyone who wants to get out on the trail--from day hiker to thru-hiker.

This official book celebrates the history, beauty, and importance of the West Coast’s most iconic hiking trail. Designated as one of the first two national scenic trails in 1968, the Pacific Crest Trail is a continuous footpath of more than 2,650 miles—from the Mexican border to the Canadian border through California, Oregon, and Washington. Hikers from all over the world are drawn to this trail to experience true American wilderness and to challenge themselves—whether for two miles or two thousand. The only illustrated book officially published with the Pacific Crest Trail Association, The Pacific Crest Trail explores this legendary footpath with more than 250 spectacular contemporary images, unpublished historical photos and documents from the PCTA archives, and even the official trail map folded into an inside pocket. This book is perfect for anyone interested in conservation, outdoor recreation, and for all those who dream of one day becoming thru-hikers themselves.

About the Author:

Mark Larabee has been the managing editor for the Pacific Crest Trail Association since 2010. A Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist, he spent twenty-five years as a newspaper reporter and editor. In 2005, he spent four months researching a 13-part series about the Pacific Crest Trail.

Barney Scout Mann is a freelance writer whose articles have appeared in Backpacker, the Oregonian, and the PCT Communicator. He served as chair of the Pacific Crest Trail Association’s board of directors from 2012 to 2015. His first hike on the PCT was in 1965, and he thru-hiked the PCT in 2007.

Cheryl Strayed is the author of the No. 1 New York Times best-selling memoir Wild.

Review:

“Makes me want to grab my pack—and pick up this new book!” 
— Nicholas Kristof, New York Times columnist and bestselling author.

“The most inspiring, gorgeous and hiking-shoe-tugging book.” 
— Angala Ballard, author of A Blistered Kind of Love, Barbara Savage Award Winner

"Best Travel Books of 2016. All you ever wanted to know about this famed 2,650-mile route from Mexico to Canada is tucked inside this official trail book, published in conjunction with the Pacific Crest Trail Association. Learn about the trail’s history through archival photos and documents, and draw out your own route on the included trail map. Fans of Cheryl Strayed's 2012 memoir and #1 New York Times Bestseller, Wild, can delve deeper into that author's experience, too—Strayed herself wrote the foreword.” 
Smithsonian Magazine

"BEST COFFEE TABLE BOOK OF 2016. The only book published with the Pacific Crest Trail Association (which gets a cut of the proceeds), this tome features more than 300 pages of stories, maps, and, of course, photographs. It weighs more than your pack’s base weight, but should you ever set down some roots, it’d look pretty classy on your coffee table.”
— Backpacker Magazine

The Pacific Crest Trail’s history and imaginative power jump from the pages of this new coffee-table book.  ... Larabee and Mann's book,The Pacific Crest Trail: Exploring America’s Wilderness Trail will make you want to get out there. It's not just the prose, which is appropriately awe-stricken. It's not just the history, which is surprisingly fascinating. It's the photos. Filling up many of the book's 10"-by-10" pages, they capture the monumentality of the six national parks and 48 congressionally-designated wilderness areas through which the trail winds in California, Oregon and Washington state. Any nature enthusiast will enjoy the story. And also will be forgiven for skipping it and going straight for the photos."
— The Oregonian

"This gloriously lush and finely written by Mark Larabee and Barney Scout Mann book heads west and looks at the trail made even more famous by Cheryl Strayed in Wild (she contributes the foreword to this book). The only illustrated book officially published with the Pacific Crest Trail Association (PCTA), THE PACIFIC CREST TRAIL explores this legendary footpath with more than 250 spectacular contemporary images, unpublished historical photos and documents from the PCTA archives, and even the official trail map folded into an inside pocket. This inspired book truly makes you want to get up and out to explore the 48 wilderness areas and six national parks along this majestic trail with half of its 2,650 miles running through congressionally-designated dramatic wilderness."
Travel by Entree 

"The Pacific Crest Trail is wily, beautiful and demanding—Now, at long last, the PCT gets the comprehensive biography it deserves. The Pacific Crest Trail: Exploring America’s Wilderness Trail is the painstakingly researched and thoughtful written history of the trail, of the men and women who dreamed it up, expanded it, and continue to fight for it. The book even shines a light on the mysterious Clinton C. Clarke, the elusive PCT visionary. But make no mistake the beautiful photographs are not workplace-friendly; the full-color portraits of arroyos, hidden lakes and mountain crags, will tempt you to quit your job, sell off all your belongings and move to the Pacific Crest Trail."
—Dan White, author of Cactus Eaters: How I lost my Mind-and Almost Found Myself-On the Pacific Crest Trail
