"Published-On-Demand" Books

Many of the recent books about thruhikes have been made available through the use of print-on-demand online book publishing services such as Xlibris, Lulu, iUniverse, Booklocker, 1stBooks (now AuthorHouse)and others. In fact, I just Googled "on-demand publishers", found several lists of them, checked out a few and found a book I'd never come across before, "Dead Men Hike No Trails" by Rick McKinney at Booklocker.
