Jesse Alexander McNeil

Jesse Alexander McNeil grew up exploring the mountains and rivers of New Hampshire, which kindled his adventurous spirit and inspired later long-distance journeys, from thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail to coast-to-coast trips by bicycle, small airplane, moped, and then, horse. McNeil and the Tennessee Walker, Pepper, who traveled from the Pacific to the Atlantic with him, live in the San Juan Islands of Washington State where they continue to explore hills and fields and daydream of new journeys ahead.
