Join the Book Club!

he Dreams of Alpine has started a book club! This is a virtual book club community for outdoor adventurers who also love to get lost in a great story or book. Each month we will vote on a book to read, something outdoor, adventure or wanderlust related and this space will be a place where we can connect to discuss our favorite parts of the books, favorite quotes, what the books inspired us to do, and more. The rules of the Book Club are simple: Read, Wine, Dream, Repeat. We will have threads each week to discuss the progress and discuss the book. We'd love to have you, Join the Dream of the Alpine Book Club Facebook Group! This month, January 2018, we are reading John Muir Wilderness Essays!
