This ebook presents an inside view of a niche ski sport - long distance backcountry skiing on ultra-light gear.  The name of this ebook is: "Trails That Never End".  And it's subtitled: "Traveling Alaska on the Lightest of Skis".  This ebook is about skiing Alaska's longest winter trails.  And it's about doing this skiing on, you guessed it, cross country racing skis - "the lightest of skis."

Trails That Never End is a photo-documentary of skiing the 1000 mile Iditarod Trail, the 1000 mile Yukon Quest Trail, the 440 mile Kobuk 440 Trail, skiing from Kaktovik to Arctic Village across the Brooks Range, skiing Iditarod qualifier sled dog race trails and more.  Most of these ski trips I did with fellow Alaskans Bob Baker or Tim Miller.  The Iditarod trip was the first human-powered race from Anchorage to Nome.  And the skis of the Quest and Kobuk were the first known ski traverses of these trails.

Ninety five percent of the content in this ebook you will NOT find on my Alaska Performance Backcountry Skiing web site.  It is a large ebook: 44 MBs, with over 700 color images.   If you were to print out this ebook in PDF format, it would be around 490 pages.  So, it's a lot of "bytes per buck".  It's the "eBook That Never Ends"!

If you like reading my web site, then you will probably enjoy reading this ebook.  The stories of these ski trips are a mix of route descriptions, tales of the challenges encountered, insights and tips for fellow winter trail travelers and numerous anecdotes about the places we skied to and the people we met.

Proceeds from this book will be donated to rural cross country skiing programs and winter trail associations in Alaska: 2013 - Nana Nordic, 2014 - Nana Nordic/ Skiku, 2015 - Willow Trail Committee, 2016 - Willow Trail Committee, 2017 - Willow Trail Committee.

 

Trails That Never End - For Kindle and Kindle Reader Apps

 

The "Trails That Never End" ebook is available on Amazon for Kindle devices and Kindle readers.  Here is the Amazon Kindle book link.

You can preview and read the first 10% of the ebook for free (note: Amazon's previewer shows images larger than they are in the ebook).  You need a color ebook reader for this ebook.  Black and white Kindles just don't cut it for an ebook with so many color images.  If you don't have a Kindle, then you can use the free Kindle Cloud Reader from your web browser after you buy the ebook.
 
Note:  The cost of this ebook is less on the Apple iTunes Store ($9.99) than on Amazon ($12.99).  That is because Amazon charges authors a "delivery fee" per megabyte per ebook.  And because this ebook is so large, the delivery fee is high.  The Apple iTunes Store does not charge authors such a fee.  So the cost of the Apple iTunes version of this ebook is less.
