Description de l’éditeur
This booklet is a sample of a full-length book. It is Chapter 31 in Ameritrekking and Highpointing: Stalking the Wild Thirteeners. If you already have that book, don't buy this booklet.
This short story tells the true tale of the author's 1996 visit to Capulin Volcano National Monument in New Mexico. The visit took place in the same year as the second Ameritrek, the subject of the main book, Stalking the Wild Thirteeners. In this booklet, you can travel vicariously to a relatively unknown but beautiful park and sample the writing in the full book at the same time.
The main book, Stalking the Wild Thirteeners, resulted from an 8,000-mile, three-week road trip involving state and national parks, as well as several highpoints. A highpoint is the highest natural geographic point in a state. In the American West, highpoints are the summits of great mountains, including "thirteeners," peaks at least 13,000 feet above sea level.
Over the years Joseph Whelan drove more than 125,000 miles—the equivalent of five times around the Earth at the equator—and spent over a year on the road. He went to 45 highpoints and many other strange and wonderful places. He continues to travel and write. Buy this sample booklet and join the adventure today!
