“Walking with Freedom” film of the American Discovery Trail on DVD
Michael “Lion King” Daniel was the first person to hike the ENTIRE American Discovery Trail—including the Midwestern loop. He carried not only his pack for 18 months and more than 6,000 miles—he lugged along his video camera and gear. The result is an amazing featurelength film that shares the scenic beauty, the human beauty (and characters), and the inner drama of a lo—o—o—ong-distance thru-hike. The film premiered at the Trail Days festival in Damascus, Virginia.
