While preparing for a 2007 thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, Ken Sarzynski read half a dozen books on the subject, dozens of websites, blogs and journals. He had long-distance backpacked and bicycled many times and felt ready for the physical demands a 2,200 mile hike could extoll. Nothing could have prepared him for the social responsibility thrust upon him. Southbound on the Appalachian Trail is one man's attempt to answer all the questions posed to him before, during and after his thru-hike from Maine to Georgia. In a humorous way it, manages to not only assist potential thru-hikers in their planning but also their family members who don't quite understand why on earth someone would want to walk 2,200 miles. Future thru-hikers will learn the art of surviving on convenience store groceries, how to trick a bear into thinking you don't see it, and how to make water out of thin air. Whether you're out for the long haul or just a short hike, Southbound on the Appalachian Trail has tips, advice and stories for everyone.

Emma Gatewood was the first woman to hike the entire Appalachian Trail alone, as well as the first person—man or woman—to walk it twice and three times and she did it all after the age of 65. This is the first and only biography of Grandma Gatewood, as the reporters called her, who became a hiking celebrity in the 1950s and '60s. She appeared on TV with Groucho Marx and Art Linkletter, and on the pages of Sports Illustrated. The public attention she brought to the little-known footpath was unprecedented. Her vocal criticism of the lousy, difficult stretches led to bolstered maintenance, and very likely saved the trail from extinction. Author Ben Montgomery was given unprecedented access to Gatewood's own diaries, trail journals, and correspondence. He also unearthed historic newspaper and magazine articles and interviewed surviving family members and hikers Gatewood met along the trail. The inspiring story of Emma Gatewood illustrates the full power of human spirit and determination.
