Zero Days (Paperback)
See details
Zero Days (Paperback)
Barbara Egbert


In April 2004, Barbara Egbert and Gary Chambers began a six-month journey to hike the length of the Pacific Crest Trail with their precocious 10-year-old daughter, Mary. That October, Mary became the youngest person ever to successfully walk the 2,650-mile route from Mexico to Canada.

Zero Days is the tale of a family adventure that required love, perseverance, and the careful rationing of toilet paper. The trio, who adopted the trail names Captain Bligh (Gary), Nellie Bly (Barbara), and Scrambler (Mary), hiked for 168 days and took a total of nine “zero days”—days off from hiking, so-called because the backpacker travels zero mileage on the trail itself that day. In addition to weaving an engaging narrative, Barbara incorporates actual pages and drawing from 10-year-old Mary’s journal.

Along the way, they weathered the heat of the Mojave, the jagged peaks of the Sierra, the rain of Oregon (and paradoxically the lack of water sources there), and the final long, cold stretch of the Northern Cascades to Canada. They met trail angels like the Dinsmores and their salty-mouthed parrot, Topper. And they discovered which family values, from love and equality to thrift and cleanliness, could withstand shin splints, an abscessed tooth, aching legs, failing knees, bad water—and a long, narrow trail and 137 nights together in a 6-by-8-foot tent.

If you have ever endeavored to go the distance on a big thru-hike, you will pick up tidbits of wisdom, practical advice, and humor from this well-told story of one family’s epic journey. Or, if you simply like to read about the adventures of others who walk in the woods, you’ll enjoy the saga of Mary’s—and her parent’s—remarkable journey.

In a genre mostly full of adventure narratives about the hardiest of mountain men, this story of 10-year-old Scrambler and her 50-something parents hiking 2650 miles together inspire readers to dream about and plan their own epic journey.

Yosemite: The Valley & Surrounding Uplands Topographic Map



Now in its second edition, this 15-minute, 1:62,500-scale topographic map shows all the trails in Yosemite Valley as well as the backcountry to the south, including trails to Glacier Point, Half Dome, Yosemite and Vernal Falls, and Mariposa Grove's giant sequoias. Parts of adjacent quadrangles have been added to include popular trails that would not have been shown otherwise. The backside contains sample trips, tips on backcountry safety, contact numbers, and essential information about the park.

Although the U.S. Geological Survey 15-minute topographic maps were replaced by the 7.5-minute quads, the Wilderness Press 15-minute maps still in print are a good choice for hikers who want all the trail information without carrying all the maps (four 7.5-minute maps are needed to cover the same area as this map). All trails are clearly shown in red.

Jeffrey P. Schaffer


Virtually every single trail in Yosemite National Park is described in this classic guidebook, together with the scenery and natural history found along each trail.

Also included is the most up-to-date, topographic map available of Yosemite and vicinity, showing over 1000 miles of trails, all of them personally hiked by the author or his assistant.
