[at-l] PRESS RELEASE: Appalachian Trail Stories, Volume I

I tried to post this on another list, and it was
characterized by that list owner as an advertisement
that I should pay for, and further was:

   "...raid[ing] the user base of [xxx]. I've
   spent three-plus years building..."

Please hit the delete key now if you are easily 
offended. I've posted this on the ALDHA list, and 
been asked now by two ALDHA listers to post it here 
as well. 

You've all seen the information before, and I won't 
post it again any time soon. 

Please forgive me in advance for the duplication and
any transgressions that I may be committing by posting
this blatant propaganda on AT-L.


Press Release:

Writers Wanted!  Tim "Paddler" Hewitt has kicked 
off a book project to publish the stories of 
Appalachian Trail thru-hikers and section hikers 
who may not feel they have enough material, or the 
desire, to publish their own book.

Appalachian Trail Stories, Volume I, is a cooperative 
book project, focused on hiking stories, poetry, prose, 
fact, myth and fiction surrounding the Appalachian 
Trail. It is the first in a planned series of books 
capturing the experiences and thoughts of hikers on 
the AT, that is destined to spark the thru-hiking 
dream in outdoor enthusiasts of all ages. The mission 
of Appalachian Trail Stories, is to raise the awareness 
of this special trail in the hearts of Americans, and 
see that our priceless natural resources like the 
Appalachian Trail are preserved for generations to come. 

"Paddler" thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail from 
Georgia to Maine in 1999, and while doing so, was 
constantly entertained by stories told by hikers he 
met along the trail. "The variety of interesting 
characters who decide to walk 2100 miles from Georgia 
to Maine is simply amazing. It is important to get these
stories on paper. To get them in front of the world."

If you have an interest in participating in the project, 
or simply want more information, please visit the Trail 
Stories website at http://www.trailstories.com.

Questions and comments are welcome.
