Ep. 18 - Author Barney Mann, and his new book Journey's North

Barney Mann (trail name, Scout) joins the podcast to talk about his upcoming book (released August 1st), Journey's North

In Journeys North, Scout details the journey of a half-dozen hikers--including Barney and his wife, Sandy-- as they trod north, slowly forming relationships and revealing their deepest secrets and aspirations. They face a once-in-a-generation drought and early severe winter storms that test their will in this bare-knuckled adventure. In fact, only a third of all the hikers who set out on the trail that year would finish.

Pick up the book on Amazon, Barney's website (where you can even get a signed copy), or your local independent bookstore.
