The Pacific Crest Trail Reader Adventure History Legend on the Long Distance Trail Oregon Washington

The Pacific Crest Trail Reader Adventure, History & Legend on the Long Distance Trail Oregon & Washington

Exploring the people, places, and history of the Pacific Crest Trail as it ranges 2,650 miles from Mexico to Canada, The Pacific Crest Trailside Reader brings together short excerpts from classic works of regional writing and boot tested stories from the trail. The heart of this anthology is these real trail tales, stories taken from PCT hikers: trailside humor and traditions, trail angels and trail magic, encounters with wildlife and wild weather, stories of being lost and found, rescues, and unusual incidents. Revealing a larger context are historical accounts of events such as Moses Schallenberger's winter on Donner Pass and pioneer efforts like the old Naches Road that ended up creating access to today's trails Native American myths and legends such as that of Lost Lake near Mount Hood and selections from highly regarded environmental writers who have captured the region in print.
