This is pretty exciting! “Beyond Birkie Fever” recently got as high as #3 on the Amazon list for “Snow Skiing.” It has trickled back down that list and is sitting at about #24 right now. For some recent articles by the author Walter Rhein, check the most recent edition of Silent sports, with this article about David Landgraf.
And here’s the prologue of the book which was featured in the latest Birch Scroll.
The intent of “Beyond Birkie Fever” is to give kind of an overview of the life of an amateur cross-country skiier, and show how the American Birkebeiner can change your life. This is a great book for anyone who enjoys cross-country skiing, or would like to learn more about the sport by reading a humorous and entertaining book. Copies are available at the CyclovaXC retail store in St. Croix Falls (check out this review).
Review copies are also available to people who…I don’t know…have won the Birkie (or at least have a blog lots of people follow), request one from the author by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
