From the back cover:
Here are eight decades of experience gathered by the citizen-volunteers who help design, build and maintain the world-famous Appalachian Trail. How can a two-thousand-mile footpath through a fourteen-state area with a population of more than eighty million people, that attracts more than three million visitors each year, still manage to provide a primitive hiking and camping experience? By the art and science of “wearing lightly on the land.”
William Birchard, Jr., Robert D. Proudman, and the Regional Staff of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. 1987.
