Looking for places that might want to sell my book. I've contacted Pathfinder in Morgantown. Any others?

How about the PATC store in Harper's Ferry? Or would be a chain store?

PATC I believe only sells their own books and maps. They're funny that way.

There is a book store in Elkins, it's not a hiking outfitter, just a local bookshop, that sells books on the local history, area, thing like that.  Since Elkins is in the middle of the Mon forest, your book would be pretty popular here.

Name of the place is Mainline Books.


Also, have you thought about contacting the FS about selling the book in the nature centers like Seneca rocks, Cranberry Nature center, ect??  That would be the perfect place for hikers to pick it up, right before the hike!

I've contacted both visitor centers and am waiting to hear back from them. One director is on vacation.

There's a small hiking/camping shop in Frederick, MD, that I have bought from before. They were friendly every time I have visited.
