My seminal work on Half Dome: “One Best Hike: Yosemite’s Half Dome,” remains the only guide book devoted solely to the signature landmark of Yosemite. We have now sold over 11,000 copies. Thanks, if you bought one. We’ve also sold hundreds via eBook downloads on Kindle, iPad, etc. I love the on-line version as the photos are in color. the 2nd Edition has been available for a year.
2013’s hiking season went down with -0- deaths off Half Dome. Whew. I hope those who read the book had confidence on how to accomplish their goal. They make great Christmas gifts. Good prices are at REI, the Park, The Yosemite Conservancy and Amazon.com. If you’d like a signed copy for your hike mates, send me an email request… firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll match the Amazon price – you pay the postage and tax (if sent to CA).
An author signed copy may draw hundreds of dollars in a few years…well, maybe $5.00.
I found 2 mistakes – pen and ink into your book:
Pg 171 Last line, change 1871 to 1796.
Pg 186 Last line, change August to July.
