The Great Alone
The infectious enthusiasm of Tim Voors writing will compel you to pick up your pack and hit the trail, whether to follow in his footsteps along the Pacific Crest Trail or chart your own path.
A feast for the eyes and the imagination, Voors accompanies you along the trail like a favourite friend, eagerly pointing out every detail and filling in the background.
His engaging narrative is exquisitely illustrated with hand-painted maps and line drawings, giving this beautiful book a coffee table vibe.
Superb photography matches the quality of the illustration, making for a vivid experience as you trace the trail in your imagination.
More than just a travel journal, Tim detours to discuss the things that matter, like how much it costs, where to supply, interesting anecdotes and trail etiquette - naked hiking day anyone?!
Short of stepping foot on this legendary trail yourself, The Great Alone is the ideal way to tap into the connection that comes from repeatedly placing one foot in-front of the other.

For the pilgrim who dreams of setting out on a truly grand adventure.
"These raw open landscapes were the wilderness I had dreamed of. A land of the free, with no rules and no one around for days."
