The book is now available in paperback.
Hope you like the new cover and whimsical sketches inside its pages.
Reformatting this edition to fit a 6 x 9 inch book has helped me analyze my actual goal for this work, which is to inspire others to check out alternative trail food, to have fun with combinations, lighten their packs and remember its all about the journey.
