  • On the Trail with Boots McFarland: Volume 1
  • by Geolyn J. Carvin
  • Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform; 1 edition (June 22, 2018)


As a long-time backpacking enthusiast… I identified with each of Geolyn’s musings.

I would suggest the cartoons are targeted mostly through hikers… however, all campers would be able to identify with her comedic stylings and thoughts.  I laughed out loud and repeated to myself at each comic … “I can identify with that”.


I must admit I felt the book was a little light. After plowing through the 36 pages in a flash, I thirsted for more.

Yet this book is still a must-read for anyone who has ever set foot on the Appalachian or Pacific Crest Trails… and anyone who has ever heard of backpacking will also enjoy Boots McFarland. 🙂

Boots McFarland is an adventurous outdoor-loving cartoon character who has been hiking the trails for over 15 years. On the Trail with Boots McFarland-Volume 1 is a collection of humorous comics capturing the highs and lows of backpacking life, interspersed with entries from the author’s Pacific Crest Trail hiking journal. The ideas for most of these cartoons come directly from personal trail experiences… real or imagined. Over the years, Boots cartoons have become popular in the worldwide hiking community and now for the first time, the artist Geolyn J. Carvin is offering these images in book form. You’ll be ready to hit the trail after reading these pages!
