  1. Harly Drum says:

    I wrote a work of fiction about some thru-hikers working their way toward Canada. It’s called Hot on the Trail by Harly Drum. I walked the PCT in 2002 and the PNT in 2005. I’m a small indie author and for anyone who does read the book I would love a review. Thanks.

  2. Ray Anderson says:

    My PCT novel is titled “Sierra.” I completed hiking the PCT in 2008 and had nothing to add to the many absorbing memoirs. “Sierra” is a thriller involving released prisoners from a drug cartel muling hard drugs along the the PCT. It was released by Turner Publishing in October 2016. Thank you and happy trails!

    Just wondering why “Thru-Hiking Will Break Your Heart: An Adventure on the Pacific Crest Trail” by Carrot Quinn is not on this list?
