Ebook – Herlong, CA. My hometown

I’ve decided after much contemplation that I need to release my gallerys or photo projects in book form instead. While .pdf might not be the best for presenting my projects it’s still considerably better than web format 🙂 Anyway, I actually wrote this article a few years ago and even put together this book along with it. I have made a few updates to the text, otherwise this is my hometown in pictures: Herlong, California

Don’t be afraid to leave me feedback if you like or hate my book 🙂

With regards to those of you who have pre-ordered the book: I had to cancel the pre-order process as Amazon would not update the book in time for you to get the finsihed copy. They still had a draft that needed a lot of extra work. (in my opinion) So I cancelled all pre-orders and refunded the money so that I could be sure that you guys would get the best version at the start of the release.

Praise and/or condemnation:

Learn from a Pro who has hiked the last quadrillon years facing the final frontier and lived off the land? Or learn from a guy just like you who manages to go light, kick ass and ultimately enjoys his time outdoors? Your choice, but Ken Shaw offers insight into the lightweight world that leaves you with the feeling of ” I can do that too!”

” I like it (this book), the disrespectful tone, the no-holds-barred non-balanced way of describing your experiences. Probably because it is just the opposite of my own writing. And a good complement. This book is intended to irritate the hell out of the reader.” Jörgen Johansson – author Smarter backpacking
