Jeffrey Ryan has appeared in lecture halls throughout the United States. His beautiful photographs and storytelling ability leaves audiences spellbound and he is often asked to perform return engagements.

To Jeff, the Appalachian Trail has been much more than the backdrop for adventure. The stories of how he and a friend spent nearly three decades hiking the trail and of how the most famous trail in the world was envisioned and built speak strongly to our need to follow our passions and dreams. His messages of inspiration and perseverance speak to audiences of all ages and leave them buzzing long after the presentation ends.

Please contact Jeff directly to discuss appearing for your next library gathering, civic event, conference or sales meeting.
