  1. Desperate Steps: Life, Death, and Choices Made in the Mountains of the Northeast

    Desperate Steps

    $18.95

    A warm day on the trail turns unseasonably cold, an avalanche barrels  downhill, a foot slips on icy terrain, a trail gives way unexpectedly. In an instant, lives are lost or forever changed. In the backcountry, a single piece of gear could mean the difference between a comfortable night under the stars or a tragic news report the next day.

    In this all-new collection from the publisher of Not Without Peril and No Limits But the Sky, author Peter W. Kick recounts 20 true tales of backcountry misadventure and misfortune, including incidents along the famed Appalachian Trail, and seeks the lessons to be learned in each. From close-calls to unsolved mysteries, these stories illuminate the realities faced by outdoorspeople across the Northeast. Weather is unpredictable. The best laid plans go awry. And in the worst of times, even the best decision may not be enough to turn the tides.
