Whether you spent your time building trails or alligator-proofing a cabin, the publishers is looking for writers to share his or her experiences, cerebral and corporeal.
From Haleakala to the Everglades, Bona Fide wants to hear the tree-hugging epiphanies and vocational escapades. What happened there? How did you get hooked? What keeps you coming back?
