BEARFOOT, A Northbounder is Patrick S. Pittard's first book—the true story of his Appalachian Trail hike of more than 2,000 miles from Georgia to Maine.

Pat is a retired CEO and Chairman of the Board of Heidrick and Struggles International,Inc., the world premiere provider of executive level search and leadership consulting services. He is a Distinquished Executive in Residence at the University of Georgia's Terry School of Business, which is a faculty position. He graduated from the University of Georgia and has been honored by the Terry School of Business as a Distinguished Alumnus. He is an expert in executive level human capital matters, including recruitment, retention, compensation and succession. Pat has been widely quoted in The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Business Week, and many other international publications.

But there is another Pat Pittard....husband, father, friend, coach, teacher, world traveler, sportsman, athlete—and now, author.

Includes 3-foot fold-out Map of the Appalachian Trail

7x10, 230 Pages, $20.00

"STEP BY STEP, E-MAIL BY E-MAIL, READERS ARE BROUGHT ALONG ON A MARVELOUS ADVENTURE . EACH POSTING IGNITED MY IMAGINATION."
—Edward J. "Ed" Larson, Pulizer Prize winning author of Summer for the Gods

"I began eagerly anticipating every e-mail. Could an out-of-shape, late middle-aged man possibly achieve this strenuous ordeal? Some of the e-mails made me think he was going to throw in the towel."
—Billy Payne, CEO, 1996 Centennial Olympic Games

"A revelation, and a staggeringly theatrical story. An internationally successful CEO plunges head-long into the wilderness! Feeling as though I was there in person each day through his entries, the life lessons are abundant and illuminating."
— Jay Freer, Producing Artistic Director, Actors Theatre of Atlanta

"Bearfoot did what every 55 year old male has wanted to do—he took off on his own into the American wilderness and lived to tell the story. His journal is a fascinating tale of how a high powered CEO adjusted to life in its barest form..."
—William H."Bill" Cunningham, Past President, University of Texas

"2,168 miles. 5 million steps. 14 states."
"I feel the mountains chose me and let me finish."
