Published by Francis Tapon
Read the introduction and first chapter of this self-help book that asks a simple question: what does backpacking 2,200 miles on the Appalachian Trail teach you about life?

Who would enjoy this book? Anyone who:

* Loves reading outdoor adventure books.
* Has a good life, but wants to have an amazing one.
* Wants to learn more about the Appalachian Trail.
* Dislikes preachy self-help books, but doesn't mind getting some useful ideas presented in a light tone.
* Is stuck in a rut and is looking for some inspiration to make important changes.
* Likes to support starving writers.

Unlike the typical self-help book, Hike Your Own Hike:

* Provides an entertaining, flowing tale as a backdrop.
* Draws all its lessons from the adventure of walking the entire Appalachian Trail.
* Doesn't take itself so darn seriously!

Unlike the typical travelogue, Hike Your Own Hike:

* Is not all about the author, it's about what YOU can get out of the story.
* Delivers practical ideas that help you squeeze more out of life.
* Recounts a challenging southbound thru-hike versus the typical northbound thru-hike (less than 10% hike southbound).
