Yet Eric was the pioneer of the PCT and inspired thousands and will give you a free PCT medal from his Wall Street . There is some who dispute Eric's claim of the first to solo the PCT. I tend to believe he truly earned the right to say he was the first solo hiker

Yet Eric was the pioneer of the PCT and inspired thousands and will give you a free PCT medal from his Wall Street fortune if you finish the trail. Nowadays heroics have been replaced by the arts of light weight backing, with frequent hitchhiking to towns for resupply, and comradery with trail angels, friendly hikers, and townspeople. I tend to believe he truly earned the right to say he was the first solo hiker. This is a good book for all ages but I highly recommend it to teens who need some inspiration in their life!

The story is gripping, mostly because it is true. He recounts his trek with simple prose that captures the survivalist atmosphere of his trip. However, Ryback also manages to convey the beauty and severity of nature

The story is gripping, mostly because it is true. However, Ryback also manages to convey the beauty and severity of nature. The pictures were a nice touch, but I would have liked even more details told in his fresh, straightforward voice. The story is gripping, mostly because.

I ready this book many years ago and have been passively looking for a copy over the last five years. I remember really enjoying it and thinking it was well written.

Eric Ryback had hiked alone. A gathering of a dozen thru-hikers, much less a gathering of hundreds, was something unfathomable. He couldn’t believe the bustling Kickoff scene his nephews described. In San Diego, Diesel glanced at a computer. He called Strider right away. Eric Ryback is my uncle. Strider muses now, If I’d waited one more day, they’d never have seen it. In 2008, Eric Ryback came to Kickoff. Over the Saturday noon hour he was part of a Legends of the Trail panel, joining Billy Goat, Jerry Goller and Teddi Boston. And Saturday night before a field packed with 600, Eric dusted off his old slide trays and spoke about.

Ryback was the first person to thru-hike the Pacific Crest Trail. Ryback’s claims about hiking the PCT end-to-end were disputed after his publisher alleged he hitchhiked parts of the trip, but his stories about the sufferfest stuck with Douglas. I had just gotten really into skiing and hiking, and it helped fuel my wanderlust, Douglas says

In 1970, the 17 year old Eric Ryback set out to thru-hike the 2,650 mile long Pacific Crest Trail from Canada to Mexico! His book, The High Adventure of Eric Ryback, chronicles his journey. Who was the first person to thru-hike the 2,650 mile long Pacific Crest Trail? A 17 year old boy named Eric Ryback!! At a local used book sale, I picked up a copy of The High Adventure of Eric Ryback, an engaging and interesting story of Eric’s journey from Canada to Mexico. The 17 year old Eric had hiked the Appalachian Trail in previous summer breaks, and in 1970 he set out to escape society and find solace and adventure for 132 days on the PCT.

This is for the male twin. For his twin sister, check Erin. Eric is one of two twins who works at the Monster Ranch. Erin's high libido has caused Eric a lot of grief. After meeting them, you can start capturing monsters for quests in the dungeon. At the moment, you can catch up to nine. However, four of them are the same one. For the first quest, you need to capture a Heart Slime. They spawn on floor four.

A great read, especially if you've hike the PCT. An incredibly strong, determined, and resourceful young man. It also shows how far long distance hiking has come. He made some big mistakes - no gloves or ice axe or hiking poles, no sunscreen or mosquito netting, only 5 food drops (80 lb pack and 3 to 4 weeks between pickups). Often he pushed himself too hard.

Yet Eric was the pioneer of the PCT and inspired thousands and will give you a free PCT medal from his Wall Street fortune if you finish the trail. Nowadays heroics have been replaced by the arts of light weight backing, with frequent hitchhiking to towns for resupply, and comradery with trail angels, friendly hikers, and townspeople.

This book inspired me to take up a pack in my teen years and hit the trail. Though it is out of print, you can find used copies through Amazon. It is very well written and flows very well from chapter to chapter. There is some who dispute Eric's claim of the first to solo the PCT. I tend to believe he truly earned the right to say he was the first solo hiker. This is a good book for all ages but I highly recommend it to teens who need some inspiration in their life!

This book was pivotal in inspiring me to become a backpacker and mountaineer; I hadn't remembered much of the story - it was my summer read at 4-H camp in the 70s! After reacquiring the book, I was sad to discover how much of it is a primer on how NOT to go hiking in the winter! Technological advances have made Mr. Ryback's clothing and gear choices charmingly antiquated, but his dangerous lack of preparation and forethought in many situations overshadow what the book strives to say about his personal experience in nature.

This is a title that I checked out of the public library in my hometown when I was 16 years old. I was quite taken with the book, and kept it checked out along with Appalachian Wilderness for almost 1.5 years. I reread it every month during that time. When I finally remembered the author's last name, and was able to purchase it through Amazon, I was over joyed! The book continues not to disappoint at all! If you have a desire to buy this book, you will not be disappointed in its internal results in your own heart and soul! Happy reading! Peace, Arielle Hart

Very happy to find this book at such a reasonable price. Condition was as described. Thanks!

I didn't realize that this was a paperback book when I ordered it I was expecting a hardcover. It was very old and musty and so I returned it. I think it would have fallen apart easily.
While the story did not disappoint, the book arrived without a front cover. It would have been nice to know it was in that condition before hand.
