Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Back in the 1970's there was a monumental 2 volume set of books published called 'Hiking the Appalachian Trail'. They told the stories of the first intrepid thru hikers, before trail names, before light weight gear, before freeze dried food, and before almost anyone knew what the Appalachian Trail was. These are some of their stories reprinted for the first time in over 20 years. They are exciting, compelling and true. You will find their stories as originally written by the hikers themselves. Included are some of the most famous names associated with the Appalachian Trail such as; Benton MacKaye, Myron Avery, George Outerbridge and Grandma Gatewood. So lace up your boots and get ready for a hike on the worlds most famous long distance trail with some of the trails most famous pioneers.Stories of the first thruhikers and AT luminariesReprinted excerpts of the classic 2 volume Hiking the Appalachian Trail by Rodale Press 1975New forward written especially for this edition by Dave Startzell - Executive Director of the Appalachian Trail ConservancyThe original 2 volume edition inspired scores of hikers and you will see whyRead about hiking in the 1920s, '30s, '40s and '50's before modern equipmentFirst person accountsAuthor - Edited by Debra SmithBinding - PaperPages - 240Publisher - StackpoleYear - 2010"ISBN - 9780811705981.
