Weird Hikes, Art Brenstein

Weird Hikes: A Collection of Bizarre, Funny, and Absolutely True Hiking Stories - Art Bernstein

If you like hiking tales told in a breezy, chewing-the-fat-with-friends style with a touch of ghostly and mystical, consider Weird Hikes.  The stories are about 15 pages each, so not super quick reads, but enough that you can keep the book on the bedside table, read a chapter, and still make it to bed at a reasonable hour (where you will then lay awake trying to decide where fact and fiction blend).  If you decide to give the hike a go yourself, there are brief details about where to find the trails at the end of each chapter.  Collected together they also give the book a bit of an autobiographical feel.
