Featured: Trail Angel Mama by Sue Holman and Trisha Faye
Sue Holman and Trisha Faye
They set out to share their blessings with other hikers. Instead, they discovered that they were the ones being blessed.
Trail magic; kindnesses from the hearts of strangers add magic to hiker’s journeys.
This magic is often small – a bottle of water, a ride into town, a candy bar.
Sometimes the generosity is a meal or a bed for the night.
The Holman’s, day hikers themselves, live near the Pacific Crest Trail.
They searched for a way to give back to their community.
When they gave another hiker a ride into town and he asked about a laundromat, it opened up a new journey for them.
Opening their home for washing clothes, eating a hot meal, and offering a bed (or a couch) for the night gave them more than they ever expected.
Their world expanded as they met hikers from across the nation, and from around the world. Hearts were warmed with the sharing of evenings tales and the hikers soon gave Sue her own trail name – Trail Angel Mama.
Step inside and see the Pacific Crest Trail from the other side of hiking, as Trail Angel Mama tells her story of this new and exciting venture.
The Holman’s discovered a new world in this journey as the hiker’s appreciation touched their hearts in an unexpected way.
They set out to share their blessings with other hikers.
Instead, they discovered that they were the ones being blessed.
Meet Trisha Faye:
Trisha writes from her home in north Texas…when she can get the kittens off her lap and off the keyboard.
Some days she just gives up and heads out back to tend to her gardens. Herbs and irises fill the garden, including the memory garden and birdseed garden.
Trisha chases her elusive Gemini twins for the subject of her next book. One twin pays tribute to people and things of the past.
The other twin is an eclectic minx that loves to write about herbs and gardens, trail magic, and rescuing feral kittens

Review by Book Customer:
Interesting account of a year (actually a couple of months) of being a trail angel close to the Pacific Crest Trail.
I have read many books about those who have hiked the trails, but this is the first about one of the trail angels.

I absolutely love it.
The stories are amazing and it is written from so close to where I love.
I feel like I am right there.
