Barney Scout Mann

Barney Scout Mann

In 2007, a group of six hikers embarked on a 2,650 mile journey north from Mexico to Canada along the Pacific Crest Trail—a journey that many others would begin that year but only a third would finish. Barney Scout Mann was one of those hikers, and in his new memoir Journeys North: The Pacific Crest Trail, he brings us along for the ride. As a lifelong hiker traveling with his wife, Mann thought he was prepared for their adventure—but the group’s resolve is tested by a once-in-a-generation drought and early sever winter storms. In this livestreamed presentation, Mann weaves together an ensemble story of these half-dozen hikers as they slowly form relationships along the trail and reveal their deepest secrets and aspirations. Join us for a look at Mann’s compelling memoir, a story of grit, compassion, and the relationships people forge when they strive toward a common goal. Barney Scout Mann is an author, long-distance hiker, and outdoor advocate. He served as the Chairman of the Board for the Pacific Crest Association for three years, and now serves as President of the Partnership for the National Trails System. His articles have appeared in Backpacker Magazine, The New York Times, the Oregonian, and more.
