Meet the Author

Rich and Sue Freeman have written and published 14 outdoor recreation guidebooks for Central and Western New York State. We've criss-crossed the region in search of hiking trails, biking trails, trails to waterfalls, cross-country ski trails, snowshoeing trails, and backpacking trails. I guess you could say we specialize in trails. But, not only the green kind. We've also explored blue trails - the lakes, ponds, creeks, streams and rivers for canoeing and kayaking. Along the way we were intrigued by the exotic cobblestone buildings that dotted the region - they seemed to pop up in the most unexpected places. So for a different kind of fun, we researched the region's cobblestone history and wrote a biking or driving tour guide to see cobblestone buildings.

The company we formed to formalize our "play time" is called Footprint Press. Rich and I ARE Footprint Press. You can't get much smaller company wise. Before forming Footprint Press 12 years ago, we both worked at Eastman Kodak Company. For 10 years we lived through one round of layoffs after another, each time wondering if our turn would be next. Finally we decided that was no way to live - we woke up and decided to go on a long hike. I had backpacked a lot as a teenager and young adult, but my husband was a novice. We dove in and spent 6 months walking from Georgia to Maine on the Appalachian Trail.

At the end of 6 months our bodies were tired, sore, and skinny, but we didn't want to stop hiking. We also didn't want to go job hunting. So, we researched and wrote our first "Take A Hike" guidebook and launched Footprint Press. We vowed never to hire employees - and we've kept that vow.
