DP Turner is the coauthor of several articles, a storyteller, Eagle Scout, and an active member of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and the Tropical Trekkers Chapter of the Florida Trail Association. He has completed his new book “Almost There: Almost True Trail Tales”: an inspiriting story of a man traversing the Appalachian Trail and meeting profound characters and meaningful circumstances along the way.

Author Turner presents a trek fraught with hardships, beginning with a fall that breaks his ankle nearly two miles from help. And yet a glimmer of hope and wisdom shines through.

Although he had hiked 1,500 miles of that trail during his adolescent years, an unlikeable classmate in high school talked him into a return forty years later. Thinking he was a hiking expert, Turner would find that a return would be quite different. The trail’s culture and path had changed. Backpacking technology had passed by him. But along the way, that unlikable person would become a close friend and hiking partner.

Come on a journey on a path full of danger, wonders, and remarkable people with stories needing to be told. Discover how hiking philosophies and generations had changed in four decades. Go on a quest as he tries to finish a forty-mile gap in Virginia that had haunted him all during his adult life.

Along the way, he rediscovers personal growth that had lain dormant since his teenage years and what it really means to be ‘Almost There.’”

Published by Page Publishing, DP Turner’s powerful account bears the experience of a seasoned hiker on his way to discover a panorama of cultures and virtues that vividly paint a beautiful picture of life.

Readers who wish to experience this work can purchase “Almost There: Almost True Trail Tales” at bookstores everywhere or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
