Practical advice on a range of concerns from hundreds of women long-distance hikers.
'Maine Rose' hiked the length of the Appalachian Trail in 1995. It inspired her to write this book which answers all the questions she had before her hike and were not addressed anywhere because most AT books are written by men (not that there's anything wrong with that). She covers issues like security, food and nutrition, health issues, privacy, sanitation and more. A vivacious and instantly likable soul she was featured in the 'Trailside' video on the Appalachian Trail and in a photo journalistic essay book by newspapers that had sent reporters out to hike the trail to see the sights. She also gathered info from other female hikers and weaves this info into a highly readable narrative. This book also contains a most extensive bibliography so if you want more you will know where to look. This is a great book for men to read so they can possibly gain some insight as to what their partners might be thinking or feeling. Imagine that. See you on the trail.Binding - PaperPages - 200Publisher - Insight PublishingYear - 2000ISBN - 1885640609.
