Thru-hiker of 1980 and force behind the A.T. Museum Society weaves history, maintainer’s perspectives, accounts of several dozen thru-hikers (well-known and obscure), and the how’s of walking the A.T. into an entertaining history of walking the Appalachian Trail “end-to-end.”
From the back cover:
'A life more worthwhile even the gods could not dream of,” says Darrell Maret of time spent on the Appalachian Trail.
Maret is one of the dozens of Appalachian Trail thru-hikers whose fascinating accounts appear in this book. Their experiences are presented by topic and include useful information on food, equipment, surprises, friendships, mental challenges, spiritual awakenings, and adjustments to life after the trail.
This unique study offers insight into the many reasons people decide to walk the trail’s 2,200 miles from Georgia to Maine, as well as lively descriptions of the ways in which they successfully complete it.
Larry Luxenberg. 1994.
