The Pacific Crest Trail: Exploring America's Wilderness Trail
Wednesday, May 24th | 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Barney Scout Mann
Join award-winning author Barney Scout Mann for an evening of powerful stories and stunning imagery, as he discusses his life experiences—exploring America’s most iconic hiking trails.
His latest book, The Pacific Crest Trail: Exploring America's Wilderness Trail, was chosen as "Best Books of 2016" by Amazon. Smithsonian Magazine named it "one of the best travel books of 2016" and Backpacker Magazine called it "the best coffee table book for 2016".
Following the success of The Appalachian Trail, and the New York Times bestseller, America's Great Hiking Trails, Mann's latest work has been widely recognized as the official book on one of America's most iconic hiking trails.
A prolific long-distance hiker and avid backpacker for 50 years, Mann hiked the entire length of the Pacific Crest Trail over five months—spanning 2,650 miles—from Mexico to Canada. The New York Times calls him "the informal historian for the trail". He has also been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, The San Diego Union-Tribune, The Oregonian, and Backpacker Magazine, amongst others.
Due to considerable interest in the Forum, we have now closed registration for the event, as we are at full capacity.
