Imagine forging your way through fog-laden forests in the high Andes, camping along 600 year-old Incan trails, climbing 13,000-foot passes, and braving rain storms as your trail turns to slippery mud. After four days, you wake up in the early morning and walk two miles in the darkness to an overlook awaiting the sunrise. Within minutes the clouds lift and rays of golden light begin to uncover one of the planet’s most majestic ruins. Machu Picchu’s stone secrets are slowly revealed in the breaking dawn.

The trek along the Inca Trail is just one of ten adventures described in A Journey Along the World's Great Treks. While countless books are written about brave mountain climbers willing to risk their lives to reach the world’s lofty peaks, few books are written detailing acheivable adventures for everyone. A “bucket-list” book that breaks the mold, Great Treks describes the authors’ wanderings along the world’s preeminent trails that are reasonable for any fit person with a strong will to complete. All the amazing experiences can be acheived without any technical climbing skills.

Walk the trails with internationally acclaimed walking expert Jeff Salvage and Kirk Markus, intrepid traveler and passionate outdoorsman. Their stories (greatly expanded from this site) will inspire you to get off the couch and explore the world. Great Treks goes beyond a simple narrative describing the trails. View each trip through their camera lenses and daily firsthand accounts. Jeff’s straight forward narrative balanced by Kirk’s introspection provide a Ying-Yang ride allowing you to learn from their often humorous mistakes, friendly banter, and the trail’s endless conundrums. Salvage’s traversal of all ten Great Treks produces a consistent viewpoint for meaningful comparisons of each trek. Finally, to help you prepare, a complete training guide and equipment explanation are included.

Travel with Jeff and Kirk and explore six continents spanning Nepal’s Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Treks, Burma’s Kachin Tribal Village Trek, Peru’s Inca Trail, Tanzania’s Mt. Kilimanjaro Trek, Chile’s Torres del Paine Trek, Europe’s Tour de Mont Blanc and Haute Route, U.S.A.’s Rimto-Rim-to-Rim of the Grand Canyon, and New Zealand’s Milford Trek. Discovery awaits!.
