Publisher Comments:

Sometimes poignant, always witty, Art Bernstein offers fourteen engaging stories of strange-but-true events that occurred while he was hiking. These tales of unexplained phenomena, mythical beasts, and unusual incidents cover ground from Juneau, Alaska, to the Florida Everglades, from a chance encounter with the mysterious Lady in the Woods to being stalked by a herd of mad deer. Entertaining, thought provoking, and downright funny, this collection of personal essays is the result of a lifetime on the trail and an inspiration for readers to get out and experience their own Weird Hikes.
