Author and freelance writer Joe Cuhaj hails from New Jersey but moved to Alabama almost 30 years ago and became one of those Yankees – one who fell in love with the state’s rich biodiversity and landscapes and never went home. Combining his love of hiking and writing, Joe has penned six outdoor recreation books including Hiking Alabama, Hiking the Gulf Coast, Hiking Through History Alabama, Best Dog Hikes Alabama, Paddling Alabama, and his latest, Hiking Waterfalls of Alabama. He has also authored a guide to camping in the state, Best Tent Camping Alabama. His love of history afforded him the chance to write two historical books about Alabama’s port city, Mobile – Baseball in Mobile and Hidden History of Mobile – for History Press. And falling back on his former career in radio broadcasting, Joe has also produced a number of humorous short story podcasts, Joe Cuhaj’s Shorts, that can be heard on his website.
