Baekdu-daegan Trail Guidebook
"Hiking Korea’s Mountain Spine"
By Roger Shepherd and Andrew Douch,  with David A. Mason
"I received the book last week and have already read most of it.  Well put together - I'm glad I waited.  
I remember your blog some years back when you were doing the trip - it was great to see some
scenery outside Seoul and different from the usual fare. The details are spot-on and the photography
makes me want to get back out there and explore."   -- expat resident Mike Casey
"The book ROCKS! Super well-done lads, the lay-out, the pics the data and all...top bloody notch!"
-- A. Jake Preston, Daejeon, leader of
Korea on the Rocks
"It is really sharp looking -- a professional product in all senses.   It looks like you guys did an awesome
job organizing and breaking down the trail into chunks. My initial impression is that if this was something
I'd wanted to do but was a bit hesitant, this book would make me feel much better about my chances of
having a successful trip, and I think that's exactly what a guidebook is intended to do. In that you have
succeeded and it will be interesting to watch as this grows over the next few years."   
-- Chris Meder, former hiker of a good part of the Baekdu-daegan Trail
