12 books that are the perfect gift for your favorite hiker

As it turns out, Americans really like to hike. In 2016 the Pew Research Center found that half of Americans had gone on at least one hike the year before.

And it’s not just hyperactive 20-somethings. Another study revealed that nearly every age group likes hiking the same amount.

With numbers that widespread, it’s likely that you’ve got someone in your life that finds peace while trekking through the outdoors.

So whether it’s your active teenage niece, your spiritual, 30-something friend, or your walk-loving grandparent, a gift that shows them how well you know them is the perfect way to put a smile on their face this holiday season.

For example, Into Thin Air is a detailed account of a storm atop Mount Everest that claimed eight lives. Jon Krakauer’s novel is hailed by many as one of the greatest adventure books of all time. And rightly so. He was on the mountain during the disastrous season on the highest mountain on Earth.

Skip the shoes and backpacks — hikers tend to be really selective when it comes to their favorite gear — and instead get them a book they’ll love.
