Win a Signed Copy of Appalachian Trials

Appalachian Trials | Signed Copy

Zach Davis, author of 'Appalachian Trials' recently sat down with me for an interview about his new book, written after successfully thru-hiking the AT with no prior backpacking experience. I'm thankful to Zach for making the time to do this and share his experience with all of us.

There are an enormous number of great books available about preparing for the AT. They outline what gear to take and how to plan your route, but this is the only book, that I've read, that addresses and prepares you for the psychological and emotional challenges you will be confronted with during a half year backpacking trip. We needed this book to be written.

Appalachian Trials | Signed Copy

Zach has very kindly sent me a signed copy of his book to give away to one lucky reader of Brian's Backpacking Blog. So you each have a change to get a free copy (in shiny, bright yellow) signed by the author! He's even provided you with a list of reasons why you should read this book..

Yes it is bright! #10

All great reasons and I'd have to agree with #10 completely! This is a book that will stick out on your bookshelf.

How to Win
The last few giveaways I've done were simple enough to enter (I thought), but required a lot of after the fact collation on my part. So I'm going to make this a little easier on myself and hopefully for all of you.

  1. Go to the Brian's Backpacking Blog Facebook page created for this book giveaway
  2. Click on the "Share" button and share it with your friends
  3. While you're there I'd recommend 'liking' the Facebook page to make sure you don't miss out on all the additional conversations, readers posts, future giveaways, news, reviews, and tips & tricks
That's it. Share the love of Brian's Backpacking Blog with your friends on Facebook and be entered to win a signed copy of Appalachian Trials. Easy! I will use Random.org to pick a random user from all of the eligible entries on Wednesday, March 21st. That gives you just one week to enter!

For those of you that do not have a Facebook account (and continue to hold out), shoot me an email and I'll get you entered. And as always, if you’re active duty military and deployed and are unable to complete the entry methods above, simply shoot me an e-mail and I’ll get ya entered in too.


This book is a great, good luck to everyone.
