Meet Author: Soren West

Meet the author Soren West as he discusses Northbound with Theo: A Man and His Dog Thru-Hike the Appalachian Trail at Ages 75 and 8.

After 46 years as a trial attorney, and at the age of 75, Soren West and his golden retriever, Theo, set out to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail.

2,200 miles, February till October, all sorts of weather! Soren loses 30 pounds, has a tooth reset, and his shoulder repaired. But he also meets wild people, unscalable rocks, and night-time frights on this “life-changing adventure,” all the way with Theo! Soren West discovered the woods as both adventure and refuge from a difficult home life as a 12-year-old.

Don’t miss this talk that will include lots of photographs of the journey!

The book is available at OWL to borrow, and Soren will be selling books at the event for purchase.
