Mama Boots recounts, with observant details and humorous conversations, twenty years of section hiking the entire A.T. with more than 100 Girl Scout hiking companions.
From the back cover:
Mary Sands, better known to Girl Scouts and hikers as Mama Boots, recalls the highs and lows of her treks over the Appalachian Trail. She emphasizes not only the physical ascents and descents on “the A.T.” of exhilaration and exhaustion, but also the emotional fluctuations from exuberance and fulfillment to fear and anger…
This is not only Mama Boots’ expedition and conquest of the Appalachian Trail, but it is also a quest of Mama Boots’ young Girl Scout companions who are out to discover, whether consciously or unconsciously, independence and self-realization while hiking. New friendships are forged between the girls and a maturation process takes place. Mama Boots witnesses this as her family and Girl Scouts grow up during her years of hiking the Appalachian Trail. The girls discover the value of camaraderie and perseverance which they can use on the Trail and later in life.
Mary Sands. 2016.
