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

The nerve!

This sounds like a blatant attempt to capitalize on the hard work & sweat 
of other hikers... You are playing on the sympathies of the members of this 
list trying to get help with the book, and trying to increase your book 

(pssssst...... it worked .... let me know when it's done...)

 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.
