A Conversation with Best-Selling Author Robert Stone
From Montana to Hawaii, Barely a Trail Escapes His Notice

When part-time Californian Robert Stone decided to write a guidebook detailing the trails of his Montana residence, Red Lodge, in the early ‘90s, he did it as a summer hobby to supplement his real estate business. Now, 23 hiking guidebooks and multiple journalism awards later, the Los Angeles Times best-selling author writes full time as one of the nation’s most successful outdoor writers; he’s hiked and described thousands of miles of trails in the western United States and Hawaii. Stone — who next month will release new editions of his L.A. and San Luis Obispo books — talked to us about the joys of living life on the trail.
