From the back cover:
“…In a mere 272 pages, she walks the prospective hiker through every aspect of preparation, from physical conditioning and scheduling to gear packing and mail drops. Though she focuses on the most popular type of thru-hike – northbound, in-season, with a fairly low pack weight – Ray provides options, suggestions, and resources lists that can be tailored to almost any style of hiking. Her attention to detail means that you’ll be a lot more comfortable when you hit the trail, and her humorous anecdotes about trail life will make your preparation time fun as well as stress-free.”
