New Book- Nettie Does the NCT

cover Nettie Does the NCT
from Lorana Jinkerson

Lorana Jinkerson, NCT volunteer, and active member of the North Country Trail Hikers Chapter, has written a book for children about the trail. Lorana, of Marquette, Michigan, is a retired Professor of Educational Technology at Northern Michigan University.

Nettie Does the NCT: North Country Trail is a children’s book about four friends who are members of the North Country Trail Association and love to hike the North Country National Scenic Trail. As the story of their adventures unfolds, Blue Blazes provide the reader with interesting and useful facts about the North Country Trail and hiking it, thus making this book a teaching tool for parents and teachers as well as a fun book to read.

For those who can make it, there will be a book dedication party, July 10, at 5 pm in Marquette (at 1830 Altamont). Please RSVP to Lorana. Anyone who plans to attend the NCTA conference in Valley City, ND may also meet Lorana and purchase the book there.

All profits from the sale of the book will be divided between the NCTA and the North Country Trail Hikers Chapter.
