Women and Thru-Hiking on the Appalachian Trail: Practical Advice from Hundreds of Women Long-Distance Hikers (Official Guides to the Appalachian Trail) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hundreds of long-distance hikers contributed practical advice on a range of concerns during a two-year survey and analysis process, on the Trail and on the Web. Some concerns are particular to women, others are on the minds of all hikers.

Synopsis:

During and for two years after her thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in the early 1990s, even using the infant Web, Beverly "Maine Rose" Hugo surveyed other women hiking to collect as much practical advice as she could. She analyzed and organized what she gathered into a detailed primer, addressing concerns particular to women starting out on long hikes but also concerns on the minds of men. (Hugo died in the spring of 2001 of a brain tumor, discovered as the result of a fall on a hike the previous fall.)
