Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'Originally, I was attracted to the AT for the adventure of walking the whole thing at once... Even as I finished, I did not understand those who chose to repeat the walk. But the next spring I found I wanted to go. And I understood that you never walk the same trail twice... I learned that I walk to fill my heart with wonder, to feed my soul.' - Merlin 'I know I'll be out there again. I don't know when and I don't know with whom. But I know, once more I'll live the nomadic life I loved on the Appalachian Trail.' - Trail Gimp These are some of the voices of thru-hikers in A Season on the Appalachian Trail. Each year this unique breed of adventurers brave a 2,100 mile trail through a barrage of weather and an array of circumstances. Gathered from trail registers, post cards, and personal interviews, their voices come alive to evoke the true spirit of the AT. Now with a special retrospective epilogue, A Season on the Appalachian Trail vividly recounts the joy and anguish of thru-hiking. Whether documenting their journey or contemplating its impact on their lives, the voices in A Season on the Appalachian Trail will entrance you with their honesty and humanity. (6 X 9, 240 pages, b&w photos, maps)
