Regional-heritage author and newspaper columnist Dave Hurst has been writing about the cultural and natural heritage of Pennsylvania’s Allegheny Mountains for 25 years, since his days as a reporter, first for WTAJ-TV in Altoona and then for The Tribune-Democrat in Johnstown. He was the founder and original editor of Westsylvania magazine. Since 2003 he has published a syndicated newspaper column that looks at our regional heritage and ways that readers can experience it for themselves. Believing that he should practice what he preaches, Dave is an active bicyclist, kayaker, hiker and camper, who makes it a point to enjoy the sites and events about which he writes. To read more of his columns, visit www.hurstmediaworks.com. The History Press of Charleston, SC, recently published a collection of Dave’s historical essays in a book titled “Pennsylvania’s Allegheny Mountains: The First Frontier.” You can see the book at www.historypress.net.
