Ever wondered what it feels like to walk 17 hours (or 47 miles) a day, every day, for six-and-a-half weeks? On the Appalachian Trail? Southbound? And still see more wildlife than most thru-hikers? In 2011, Jennifer Pharr Davis, supported by husband Brew and others, hiked the A.T. in less than 46 days and 12 hours – the fastest reported by any woman or man previously. But her story was and is so much more than that.
From the back cover:
in 2011, Jennifer Pharr Davis became the overall record holder on the Appalachian Trail. By hiking 2,181 miles in 46 days – an average of 47 miles per day – she became the first female to ever set that mark. But this is not a book about records or numbers; this is a book about endurance and faith, and most of all love.This is Jennifer’s story, in her own words, about how she started this journey with a love for hiking and more significantly a love for her husband Brew. Together, they were able to overcome rugged mountains and raging rivers, sleet storms and 100-degree heat, shin-splints and illnesses. They made new friends and tested old friendships; they shared together laughter and tears – a lot of tears. But through it all, they fell more in love with one another and with the wilderness.
Jennifer Pharr Davis. 2013.
