$ 24.99
A Worthy Expedition: The History of NOLS begins with the story of Paul Petzoldt, from his early years growing up with his farming family in Creston, Iowa, to his founding of NOLS in a small log cabin in 1965 in Sinks Canyon, Wyoming at the age of 57, and finally, to his death in 1999, at the age of 91. The current-day school includes NOLS Wilderness Medicine, which was purchased in 1999, and NOLS Custom Education, which became part of the school in 1999. Both have brought an expanded set of expertise in wilderness leadership skills to new audiences, while keeping intact the values that create the NOLS experience.This coffee table-style book will appeal to NOLS grads, the parents and children of NOLS grads, and anyone with wild in their spirit. The author, Kate Dernocoeur, is a journalist, non-fiction writer and two-times NOLS alumni.
