In his spare time, Al is an author. He wrote the delightful and sometimes shocking Appalachian Trail adventure Avalanche and Gorilla Jim. This is Al’s personal experience about two guys on a 1,300 mile trek over grueling terrain where you share such fun and excitement as hilariously trying to stop a night bird’s screaming for the thousandth time–to being rescued in a snow storm, and revealing murders on the Appalachian Trail.
