Note: In July 2002, AOL's hometown websites self-destructed and took this book with it. It's now being restored to, with some new formatting.

This is the entry page for The Middle-Aged Hiker. It is a full-length book, including photographs and audio clips in TrueSpeech format. You are welcome to download and enjoy this entire book, which is presented chapter by chapter on these 45 web pages -- approximately 2 megabytes of sight and sound. In print, it occupies nearly 400 pages (though it is not yet publicly available in that form).

This book is the result of many years' journals and other writings. Our decision to publish it on the web is a chancy one. If you enjoy this book, we hope that you will consider it "bookware", and send an appreciative sum to our address at Malted/Media Productions, 176 Cox Brook Road, Northfield VT 05663.

Note: Should you wish to avoid downloading the 120 files (2 megs) that make up this book, we will be happy to send you the files -- including 20 additional scanned photos -- on CD-ROM for an appreciation of $15 or more.

You may also obtain higher-resolution versions of the photographs in this book, and many other canyon photos. Please contact us at Contact Form for information.
