White Blaze Fever, a true life adventure that embraces the reader as a "hiking partner" in pursuit of the 2-inch by 6-inch white blazes from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Mt. Katahdin, Maine.

Through daily journal entries - revised only a little - the vicarious hiking partner will share encounters with bear, moose, snakes and other wildlife. The reader will feel the thrill of viewing the most magnificent vistas east of the Mississippi and come to know a unique collection of individuals guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart.

A must read for both the arm chair adventurers and the stalwart hikers who not only enjoy reading hiking adventure, but are also looking for specific information on hiking the Appalachian Trail. Over one hundred informative and essential "Hiker Tips" have been infused for hiker assistance and benefit.

"Bill: Thank you so much for such interesting detail in your descriptive writing of your sojourn on the trail. This gives me an excellent visual of the sites, terrain, people, and rigors of hiking."

"...I particularly appreciate your tips to potential future hikers about equipment, tricks for a better trip, and places along the trail that are must sees as well as the few that are best avoided..."
