Appalachian Odyssey Book Tour Schedule of events

On the Road

Book Tour 2016

Soon, I’ll be hitting the road in my 1985 VW Vanagon for the 2016 Appalachian Odyssey Book Tour.

Look for an updated schedule of venues on my calendar, then stay tuned for Tweets, videos, blog posts and more!

If you know of a book store, gear store, library or school near you that would be interested in having me appear for a lecture and/or book signing, please contact me.

I hope to see you on the road or meet you out on the trails.

Jeffrey H Ryan is an author, adventurer, photographer and historian. He has written several books about his outdoor exploits, his fascination with hiking trails and the people and places found just off the beaten path. His debut book, Appalachian Odyssey: A 28-year hike on America's trail was hailed by the former Executive Editor of National Geographic as "a classic of nature and travel writing" and set off a national tour (in a 1985 VW camper, no less). His books are known for weaving a deep appreciation for history into walks across contemporary landscapes that give readers the feeling they are hiking right alongside. When Jeff isn't trekking, chasing down a great story or spinning yarns from his keyboard, he enjoys sharing his adventures with audiences who love the outdoors. He spends much of his time in his beloved native state of Maine.
