Trails Not Scales with Summer Michaud-Skog: Author of Fat Girls Hiking: An Inclusive Guide to Getting Outdoors at Any Size or Ability

From the founder of the Fat Girls Hiking community comes an inclusive, inspiring call to the outdoors for people of all body types, sizes, and backgrounds. Through heartfelt stories, practical advice, personal profiles of Fat Girls Hiking community members, and helpful trail reviews, Summer Michaud-Skog inspires readers to redefine who is considered “outdoorsy” and to get outside, no matter their size. Whether you’re an experienced or aspiring hiker, you’ll be empowered to hit the trails and find yourself in nature. Trails not scales!
