The heart of this anthology is these real trail tales, stories taken from PCT hikers: trailside humor and traditions, trail angels and trail magic, encounters with wildlife and wild weather, stories of being lost and found, rescues, and unusual incidents. Revealing a larger context are historical accounts of events such as Moses Schallenbergers winter on Donner Pass and pioneer efforts like the old Naches Road that ended up creating access to todays trails- Native American myths and legends such as that of Lost Lake near Mount Hood- and selections from highly-regarded environmental writers who have captured the region in print, including Mary Austin in The Land of Little Rain - John Muir in The Mountains of California- and Barry Lopez in Crossing Open Ground.
