Longtime Zine contributor and all around good guy, D Scott Borden announced the release of his children’s book, Squeak Goes Climbing in Yosemite National Park yesterday. He’ll be running a Kickstarter campaign all month, which includes options to pre-order the book. (Be sure to check out the adorable video with Scott’s son Kai.)
Here’s some more details. We’re mighty proud of Scott and we’re going to help distribute the book. Cheers buddy!
From the campaign:
This projects is a labor of love that started over 10 years ago after climbing El Capitan. While working in Yosemite at NatureBridge, one of the most awesome environmental education organization on our little planet, the author was inspired to write a children’s book that described concepts in basic climbing and natural history to kids while encouraged them to follow their dreams. The author and illustrator, the incredibly talented Mallory Logan, were good friends from college and connected to make the project possible. They are both parents and want to inspire their kids to dream big. Now they need your help to print it.
About us: The Climbing Zine was started in 2010 by Al Smith III and Luke Mehall. It continues to the day with the mission of representing the true essence of climbing. Our crown jewel is our printed version, but we also do the interweb thing, and Kindle.
