Hear from dynamic, award-winning authors and local legends!

Join us at the Incline Welcome Center to hear Tim Hauserman and Suzanne Roberts read excerpts from their books & tell stories from their hiking adventures. Books will be available for purchase & signings by the authors. Light refreshments will be served.

Tim Hauserman will discuss two of his books, Going it Alone and Tahoe Rim Trail.

Going It Alone: Ramblings and Reflections from the Trail

The personal story of the conflict between Tim’s deep love for time alone in the wilderness with the feelings of loneliness and fear he sometimes finds once he gets there. The story combines self-deprecating humor, Stupid Tim Tricks and delightful descriptions of the natural surroundings as Tim hikes on the John Muir Trail, Tahoe Rim Trail and Superior Hiking Trail. 


Tahoe Rim Trail: The Official Guide for Hikers, Mountain Bikers, and Equestrians 

The 4th edition of the official Tahoe Rim Trail guidebook continues the 20-year tradition of providing all the information you will need to hike, bike or ride the TRT. It provides a detailed description of the trail, information on animals and plants, and tips on water, weather and when to go. Tim has fully completed the TRT four times, the first time in 1999 when he became the 11th member of the Tahoe Rim Trail 165 Mile Club. His love for this amazing trail can be found on every page. 


Suzanne Roberts will share excerpts and stories from Almost Somewhere.

Almost Somewhere

It was 1993, Suzanne Roberts had just finished college, and when her friend suggested they hike California’s John Muir Trail, the adventure sounded like the perfect distraction from a difficult home life and thoughts about the future. But she never imagined that the twenty-eight-day hike would change her life. Part memoir, part nature writing, part travelogue, Almost Somewhere is Roberts’s account of that hike.
John Muir had written of the Sierra Nevada as a “vast range of light,” and this was exactly what Roberts was looking for. But traveling with two girlfriends, one experienced and unflappable and the other inexperienced and bulimic, she quickly discovered that she needed a new frame of reference. Her story of a month in the backcountry—confronting bears, snowy passes, broken equipment, injuries, and strange men—is as much about finding a woman’s way into outdoor experience as it is about the natural world she so eloquently describes. Candid and funny and, finally, wise, Almost Somewhere is not just the whimsical coming-of-age story of a young woman ill-prepared for a month in the mountains but also the reflection of a distinctly feminine view of nature.
