Pacific Crest Trail

George Spearing never hiked before. He left his job as a firefighter in Auckland, New Zealand and hiked 4,300 km all the way up from Mexico to Canada along the Pacific Crest Trail.

His new book “Dances With Marmots - A Pacific Crest Trail Adventure” follows the adventure from its start on an Auckland, New Zealand Fire Station, to its culmination in British Columbia, Canada.

Traversing 40 Wilderness areas, 24 National Forests, 7 National Parks, 3 State Parks, 19 major canyons and climbing 57 mountain passes, the epic journey takes the reader from near sea level at the Mexican border to 13,200 ft at Forester Pass in the snowbound High Sierra.

An entertaining and inspiring read for anyone contemplating hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, or for anyone who just enjoys a good adventure story.
