THE GREAT ALONE | WALKING THE PACIFIC CREST TRAIL | Gestalten | Tim Voors
The Great Alone is as much about physical and mental endurance as it is about overcoming loneliness and fear. Ultimately, it’s about the power of the wilderness to restore the human spirit. Get ready for the sublime beauty of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave desert, through the soaring peaks of the Sierra Nevada to Canada, traversing the American West. Lushly illustrated and featuring spectacular photography, the 2,650-mile (4,286-km) journey comes to life in The Great Alone.
Tim Voors—a passionate long-distance hiker who walked the trail alone over the course of six months—details everything you need to know, from hiking etiquette to planning food resupply boxes and navigating bear territory.
