Available in print and as an eBook for Kindle
Print version (Sold out)

Sorry, folks, I’m currently sold out of the print version of the guide, but it is still available from several places.

You can buy it directly from the publisher, Northern Wilds Media.

Buying it directly from the Superior Hiking Trail Association means all the profits go back to the trail.

Kindle version

If you don’t have a Kindle, a free app is available for computers, laptops, and smartphones through all app stores on your device. I’ve stopped bringing printed books on my hikes due to their weight, and highly recommend using an e-reader app like Kindle on your smartphone to save on weight. Using the Kindle app allows me to bring several books with me at a time.

Note: Purchase through the Amazon or Kindle apps on Apple devices is not currently possible. Use a web browser on your Apple device, log in to your Amazon account, and direct Amazon to send the eBook to your preferred device.
