My new book, Rocks, Roots and Rattlesnakes will be coming out soon, sometime this fall.
In the meantime, check out my website at

The book is all about my 2020 Appalachian Trail thru hike as told from a geologist's perspective.

The website describes the upcoming new book and offers many chapter excerpts plus lots of photos and useful info on the how, what and why questions pertaining to my thru hike.

Stay tuned for more updates on when the book will become available!
