I orginally thought this book was about the daily experiences, trials, etc. of an AT thru-hiker. Which the author does beautifully do...in the thirty, or so page Prologue...which is a fascinating summary of his 2,180 AT thru hike. But then the rest of the book covers various other topics...hiking trails...how did many of them originate and even come into existence...Native American History...animal science...and all beautifully written...If you love being out on a hiking trail..you'll love this book...I did..
