1,000 mile trek described

The Sheboygan County Historical Research Center continues its schedule for the 2017-2018 season of Second Saturdays speakers’ series on Saturday, Oct. 14, with Melanie McManus and her story “Thousand-Miler: Adventures Hiking the Ice Age Trail.”

In thirty-six thrilling days, Melanie Radzicki McManus hiked 1,100 miles around Wisconsin, landing her in the elite group of Ice Age Trail thru hikers known as Thousand-Milers.

In prose that is alternately harrowing and humorous, McManus takes readers with her on an "into-the-wild" Ice Age experience through Wisconsin's forests, prairies, wetlands, farms and far-flung small towns.

Author and elite thru-hiker, Melanie McManus, will discuss her debut memoir, “Thousand-Miler: Adventures Hiking the Ice Age Trail,” and how she accomplished the fastest women's Ice Age thru-hike.

The presentation, which begins at 9:30 a.m., will take place at the Plymouth Arts Center, located at 520 East Mill St, in Plymouth. The presentation is open to the public. No reservations are necessary.

For further details, contact the Sheboygan County Historical Research Center at 920-467-4667.

The series is made possible by funding from the John and Hilda Holden Memorial Fund and Wisconsin Humanities Council.
