Crooked River Reads: A Distinguished Author Series featuring J.R. Harris

Join the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park for a new series as we host five distinguished authors throughout 2021.

J. Robert Harris is a well-known explorer and author of Way Out There: Adventures of a Wilderness Trekker. From his origins in New York City, J.R. has roamed, mostly alone and unsupported, from Arctic Alaska to the Australian Outback, from Patagonia to the Pyrenees, and across many of the “lands” (Greenland, Lapland, Iceland, Newfoundland, and New Zealand) for more than 50 years. Now in his 70’s, J.R. is still an active and enthusiastic Trekker, having recently returned from a 3-week backpack in the Sierras. He is committed to encouraging everyone to experience the benefits that come from being in the great outdoors, and to support and protect our natural environments.

“Trail Talk from an Old Dirt Kicker” is a lively presentation enhanced with numerous photo images to illustrate the “top ten” topics people are most curious about regarding wilderness travel. He will address each topic, such as planning, skills, wildlife, fear, being alone, and fitness, within the context
