As probably the worlds most experienced long distance walker who also writes, Chris Townsend has many stories to tell and many photographs to illustrate them with. Of all his adventures, those he enjoyed on America's Pacific Crest Trail in the Eighties are among his favourites.
The PCT runs 2,600 miles from Mexico to Canada through desert, forest and mountain wildernesses. In Rattlesnakes and Bald Eagles Chris recounts not only his own six month walk but also the longer story of the Trail, and shares his ideas on how it is developing and where it is all going with his many readers.
Illustrated with Chris Townsend's photographs from his long hike, and earlier, iconic images, Rattlesnakes and Bald Eagles will be the definitive Pacific Crest Trail account.
