Since the first printing of Pathways to Recovery: A Strengths Recovery Self-Help Workbook, readers have asked, "Are you going to revise the book?" What quickly became evident was not more information or another class but a way of incorporating the material into one's daily life. Yes, it's helpful to attend classes and complete recovery tools, but if the material isn't used to help "get a live," then all the tools in the world won't change a thing...It seemed clear there should be a next step in the journey... The idea for this book came as one of those stray thoughts that occur in life-an 'aha' moment that begins to pop into your head and never leaves. The Trail is the Thing is the result of almost two years of work from four authors and more than twenty individuals who provided their ideas, edits and support to bring readers of Pathways to Recovery a new tool. This book is about finding the things in life that give passion, purpose and meaning. It's about learning and growing and reclaiming only those parts of one's past that are needed in order to move on. It's about taking each day as it comes, living and appreciating this moment, for we can't change the past and we sure can't predict the future... Each of the daily reflections include a quotation from the original Pathways text, a short reflection and "Just for Today" which gives readers suggested activities, questions or thoughts to think about for that day.

Here it is! The first comprehensive guide to trails of the South Fork. For more than ten years the Group for the South Fork has been working with the East Hampton Trails Preservation Society and the Southampton Trails Preservation Society to preserve and define the trails, ancient and new, of the South Fork of Long Island. Mike Bottini not only helped to blaze these trails, for more than four years he has been describing them in his column in The Southampton Press. "South Fork Outdoors," which served as the basis for this book, won the award for best outdoors column from the New York Press Association in 2002. An accomplished naturalist, Mike offers a vivid picture of the local ecologies of the trails. From seashore to oak/pine woods, from salt-water wetlands to freshwater ponds and kettleholes, Mike describes the unique natural history of the remarkably diverse South Fork environments. Even if you are only an armchair nature-lover, you'll find this book enormously informative. If you like to hike, whether for a hundred yards or a hundred miles, this guide is essential. Each trail is meticulously mapped and described, with extensive comments on what to look for and why.

The Trail Book is a classic of American nature writing. First published in 1918, it is a collection of children’s tales, framed by its setting in New York’s Museum of Natural History. For two children, Oliver and his sister Dorcas, the museum’s famed dioramas (which were new at that time) come to life and admit them into a series of exciting adventures that include talking animals and magical travels. Along the way, the children discover the ways of the ancient Native Americans and the landscapes of the pre-Columbian continent, as well as the impact on both Indians and wildlife from contact with European explorers and Euro-Americans. Told by a variety of narrators, including some of the animals, the stories offer a perceptive and sympathetic view of the natural history of North America and of Native American–white relations. This edition of The Trail Book includes an afterword by Austin scholar Melody Graulich that addresses Austin’s motives in writing the book and its significance as an early example of interdisciplinary multicultural literature. The illustrations by Milo Winter that enlivened the original edition are included, as are Austin’s appendix giving historical background and a glossary of Indian and Spanish names.

The Trail Book – With Illustrations by Milo Winter is a lovely book containing the tales and adventures of two children in a museum written by Mary Austin. Here they discover the lives and folklore of Native Americans and the natural world around them. This book was originally published in 1918 and is considered a classic in American Nature writing. The book is decorated with Milo Winter’s fabulous ink drawing and coloured plates. Mary Hunter Austin (1868 – 1934) was an American writer. One of the early nature writers of the American Southwest, her classic The Land of Little Rain (1903) describes the fauna, flora and people – as well as evoking the mysticism and spirituality – of the region between the High Sierra and the Mojave Desert of southern California. She was a prolific novelist, poet, critic, and playwright, as well as an early feminist and defender of Native American and Spanish-American rights. Milo Winter (1888 – 1956) was an American illustrator of the Golden Age, who illustrated dozens of books throughout the 1910’s, 20’s and 30’s and served as the art director of the Childcraft series. He was a master of animal drawings, which he could render anatomically accurate to the last detail. Other popular works containing his illustrative works include: Aesop’s Fables for Children, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland and Through The Looking-Glass.

In 1841 and 1842 small groups of emigrants tried to discover a route to California passable by wagons. Without reliable maps or guides, they pushed ahead, retreated, detoured, split up, and regrouped, reaching their destination only at great cost of property and life. But they had found a trail, or cleared one, and by their mistakes had shown others how to take wagon trains across half a continent. By 1844 a great migration was in progress. Each successive party learned from those who went before where to cross rivers and mountains, when to rest, when to forge ahead, and how to find food and water. Increased experience was translated into better wagon designs, improved understanding of climate and terrain, and better-supplied and -organized caravans. George R. Stewart's California Trail describes the trail's year-by-year changes as weather conditions, new exploration, and the changing character of emigrants affected it. Successes and disasters (like the Donner party's fate) are presented in nearly personal detail. More than a history of the trail, this book tells how to travel it, what it felt like, what was feared and hoped for.

Sometimes termed "the bible of A.T. hiking," each year's Data Book consolidates the most basic information from 11 detailed official guidebooks into a lightweight table of distances between major Appalachian Trail shelters, road-crossings, and features. It is divided according to the guidebook volumes and updated each December to account for Trail relocations, new (or removed) shelters, and other changes. In addition to codes for lodging, food, water, and other essentials, the Data Book is keyed to both the individual guidebook sections and to the separate maps. Day-hikers and long-distance hikers alike rely on this volume for armchair planning as well as on-the-trail orientation. It is also the source each year for the legendary trail's official mileage. For 2014, it's 2,189.3 miles from Maine to Georgia.

"True story of six thru-hikers whose journeys cross and eventually combine in a thrilling finale"--
Author: Barney Mann
Publisher: Mountaineers Books
Category: Biography & Autobiography
In Journeys North, legendary trail angel, thru hiker, and former PCTA board member Barney Scout Mann spins a compelling tale of six hikers on the Pacific Crest Trail in 2007 as they walk from Mexico to Canada. This ensemble story unfolds as these half-dozen hikers--including Barney and his wife, Sandy--trod north, slowly forming relationships and revealing their deepest secrets and aspirations. They face a once-in-a-generation drought and early severe winter storms that test their will in this bare-knuckled adventure. In fact, only a third of all the hikers who set out on the trail that year would finish. As the group approaches Canada, a storm rages. How will these very different hikers, ranging in age, gender, and background, respond to the hardship and suffering ahead of them? Can they all make the final 60-mile push through freezing temperatures, sleet, and snow, or will some reach their breaking point? Journeys North is a story of grit, compassion, and the relationships people forge when they strive toward a common goal.
