Thousand-Miler: Adventures Hiking the Ice Age Trail

By Melanie Radzicki McManus; Published by the Wisconsin Historical Society Press

In thirty-six thrilling days, presenter Melanie Radzicki McManus hiked 1,100 miles around Wisconsin, landing her in the elite group of Ice Age Trail thru-hikers known as the Thousand-Milers. McManus, author of the Wisconsin Historical Society Press Book Thousand-Miler: Adventures Hiking the Ice Age Trail, will take you with her through Wisconsin’s forests, prairies, wetlands, and farms, past the geologic wonders carved by long-ago glaciers, and in the neighborhood bars and gathering places of far-flung small towns. Woven throughout her account are details of the history of the still-developing Ice Age Trail - one of just eleven National Scenic Trails - and accounts of other thru-hikers who accomplished this impressive feat.
