For 10 months, beginning in January 1998, the author set off on a foot trek that carried him 4,400 miles (twice the length of the Appalachian Trail) from the Florida Keys to the far north of Quebec.
Set down in his own unique journal style, the author vividly and honestly recounts his days of walking along what has since become known as the Eastern Continental Trail (ECT). An amazing tale of self-discovery and insight into the magic that reverbs from misery, Eberhart's classic is the only written account of a thru-hike along the ECT.
Ten Million Steps is one of the best modern-day epic tales in print. Self-published by the author in 2000, the original hardback has been sold out for 4 years. This first edition paperback release should open a floodgate of interest from armchair adventurers around he globe.
