The Aroka Project featured in "Expedition to the Edge"

We are very honoured that The Mountain Movement, and more specifically, Paul's walk across the South Island of New Zealand in Winter '07, has been featured in a book called "Expedition to the Edge: Stories of Worldwide Adventure." Author Lynn Martel first wrote about The Aroka Project for the Rocky Mountain Outlook and decided to include her story in her book, which was just released by Rocky Mountain Books (pages 290-294, photo on page 299).

The book will also be featured at the Banff Mountain Book Festival this year. A special thanks to Lynn for her dedication to mountain culture and bringing our stories of adventure to life!
