Book Description :

Eleven-year-old Megan is stuck in the wilds of Vermont for the summer with no TV, no Internet, no cell phone, and worst of all, no best friend. So when Megan gets lost on the Appalachian Trail with only her little dog, Arp, for company, she decides she might as well hike all the way to Massachusetts where her best friend, Lucy, is spending her summer. Life on the trail isn’t easy, and Megan faces everything from wild animals and raging rivers to tofu jerky and life without bathrooms. Most of all, though, Megan gets to know herself—both who she’s been in the past and who she wants to be in the future—and the journey goes from a spur-of-the-moment lark to a quest to prove herself to Lucy, her family, and the world! “First-time novelist Jane Kelley uses the light touch of humor to let in the sunlight. Bravo!”—Sid Fleischman, Newbery Award–winning author

Book Description :

Like a well-crafted stage play, Just Passin' Thru delivers one suspenseful scene after another. But in this historic setting — a store on the Appalachian Trail called Mountain Crossings — the characters who show up are no fictional creations. They are the real-life stars of the author’s new life as a backpack-purging, canteen-selling, hostel-running, bandage-taping, lost-child finding, argument-settling, romance-fixing, chili-making man of many faces. Like any good drama, there are the good guys (and gals) and the weirdos, too. Some show up once (and that’s enough), and some appear again and again. Some are friends, and some dangerous. But all are united by two things: the author’s story-capturing talent, and whatever it is that lures them to attempt (or conquer) a 2,200-mile path that climbs and plummets from Georgia to Maine.

No matter what adventure you find yourself participating in, be certain that you are prepared for anything and everything. It could save your life!

Book Description :

Why would a middle-aged businessman, who had never even spent a single night outdoors, attempt to hike the entire Appalachian Trail (AT) in one year? Bill Walker, a former commodities trader in Chicago and London, and an avid walker, had developed a virtual obsession to thru-hike the 2,175 mile AT. In the spring of 2005 he set off, determined to hike this Georgia-to-northern Maine wilderness trail before the arrival of winter. Immediately, he realized he had plunged into a whole new world. The AT has some ferociously difficult terrain, winding through dramatically diverse geography, and covers the very highest peaks in the East. Walker's near 7-foot height earned him the trail name, Skywalker, and drew envious raves from fellow hikers. But that same height made him more vulnerable to weight loss, cold weather, and crushing fatigue. An elemental fear of bears, snakes, and getting lost also loomed large. The journey often seemed like a see-saw battle between his determination vs. his blunders.The Appalachian Trail has developed a remarkable culture over the years. No other country has a footpath even remotely as popular. Up to four million people hike on the AT at various points during any given year. Mortals are compelled--or perhaps cursed--to relive their lifetime adventure. This is Bill Walker's (Skywalker's) unforgettable version, leavened with ruthlessly self-deprecating humor. His fondest hope is to inspire other rookies and novice hikers, to give the Appalachian Trail a try as well.

Book Description :

Epic adventures done well and right are probable game-changers. That's what this book's about. If you're looking for a "How To" book about hiking the Appalachian Trail, this isn't it. If you're looking instead for a "Why To" book, this might be what you're looking for. In 1987, the author completed a 2,100-mile southbound trek along the Appalachian Trail. David Knobbe was young and admittedly stupid about many things related to such an adventure. Luckily, he was not beyond learning and improving with each of the five-million steps between Mount Katahdin in Maine and Springer Mountain in Georgia. Instead of getting eaten by a bear or quitting along the way, he learned from misadventures with moose, monsters, mountains, and from the miles and miles the AT provided for thinking. As is true for most thru-hikers and serious adventurers, his journey became the foundation of valuable lessons embraced ever since. For the author, the payoff of investing six months in a "great" adventure was that each day since for the last thirty years has been better than it might otherwise have been. Every positive in his life can be convincingly tied back to that initial decision to hike the Appalachian Trail. And to not quitting when things got tough. That's the power of any adventure -- not just the Appalachian Trail. If done well and right, it leads to better days - Lots of them. You can't walk the backroads of fourteen states without collecting stories. 10,000 Better Days chronicles the high and low points of an Appalachian Trail thru-hike. It describes brushes with devils and angels, heroes and heroines, kidnappers and lost souls. It's a thirty-year old snapshot of life along the thin slice of America that is the Appalachian Trail. It's always been a remarkable place. This book captures the good, the bad, and the ugly of six-months on the trail with light-hearted stories about the characters who kept the experience interesting. We'd all benefit from stepping into the wilds now and then and just soaking it in. For those who pursue something more, they might reap even more like a renewed spirit and a more-targeted trajectory. Epic adventures come in all shapes and sizes. They don't even need to involve tents or boots or mosquitoes. If done well, though, any adventure, as long as it's big enough, offers a shot at amazing and enduring outcomes. This is the story of one such adventure and its value thirty years later.

Three longtime friends and their wives go on vacation together in the Smokey Mountains. During the vacation, the guys had pre-planned to take a two day hiking trip by themselves on one of the more remote section of The Appalachian Trail. That hike turned out to be the adventure of their lives. It ultimately tested not only their friendship and their wilderness skills but their will to survive. They found themselves being stalked by a killer bear that has been driven mad by rabies. In their efforts to get away from the bear, the unthinkable happens and they loose the trail. During their second encounter with the bear they wind up getting separated from each other. This forces one of them to deal with the terror of two seperate bear attacks while all alone in the middle of the night. In all, either individually or as a group, they experience seven terrifying bear encounters. It ultimately turns into a story of courage, teamwork and overcoming one’s fears. It is a testament to their ingenuity and absolute refusal to be intimidated in the face of terror.

Book Description :

The Power and Magic of the Appalachian Trail By: Donald E. Williams Jr. “Jug” The Power and Magic of the Appalachian Trail is a real life epic tale about a series of hiking trips from Georgia to Maine that Jug and a supporting cast of counselors went on with several groups of multi-ethnic youth. Jug’s sole purpose in conducting these trips was to simply have the youth live in the mountains, catch some panoramic views, feel the pulse of the wild, hoping that the experience would trigger an awakening of the spirit and open up a brand new world that they all could express with love and pride. The trips were not easy. The Appalachian Trail hikes were mentally challenging, physically demanding, and requiring deep soul searching daily. Yet in the end, the explorations were immensely positive and also were enriching experience for the youth. The Appalachian Trail provided a setting that allowed for the openness and freedom where there is no limit to self growth, the greatest trail of all.

Book Description :

In 2009, while thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, Robert Moor began to wonder about the paths that lie beneath our feet: How do they form? Why do some improve over time while others devolve? What makes us follow or strike off on our own? Over the course of the next seven years, Moor traveled the globe, exploring trails of all kinds, from the miniscule to the massive. He learned the tricks of master trail-builders, hunted down long-lost Cherokee trails, and traced the origins of our road networks and the Internet. In each chapter, Moor interweaves his adventures with findings from science, history, philosophy, and nature writing -- combining the nomadic joys of Peter Matthiessen with the eclectic wisdom of Lewis Hyde's The Gift. Throughout, Moor reveals how this single topic--the oft-overlooked trail -- sheds new light on a wealth of age-old questions: How does order emerge out of chaos? How did animals first crawl forth from the seas and spread across continents? How has humanity's relationship with nature and technology shaped world around us? And, ultimately, how does each of us pick a path through life?
