Having hiked more than 40,000 miles of trails across the globe, Justin "Trauma" Lichter recounts the survival instincts, physical endurance, and mental resiliency needed to be a thru-hiker. Despite countless close calls, Trauma continues to push the limits of long distance hiking, safety and wilderness survival. Short Stories fro Long Trails is at times frightening, stomach-turning, humorous, and heartwarming, including tales about:

  • A wide variety of characters, from over-friendly motel clerks to escaped convicts, run-ins with lions, elephants, grizzlies, and other beasts, big and small
  • All types of weather, from one of the wettest seasons on the Appalachian Trail to the extreme heat of Africa
  • Questionable decisions when food or water is scarce, like consuming uncooked meat and treating water from sludge-like pools
  • Losing his way in the poppy fields of Copper Canyon, Mexico, amidst heavy narcotics traffic
  • His history-making winter hike of the Pacific Coast Trail, described by the New York Times as "the most daring and foolhardy expedition since Lewis and Clark".
