    "Wonderful first-hand account of an Appalachian Trail thru-hike" This book is a must-read for anyone who is planning an Appalachian Trail thru-hike; who has ever thought about hiking the Appalachian Trail; who has previously hiked the AT; or who enjoys reading about others who have hiked the AT. Ms. Shepherd, following her life-long dream, takes us along as she experiences the ups and downs, joys and heartaches, pains and pleasures of trail life. From Springer Mountain in Georgia, when she takes the first of millions of steps, to her struggle to the top of Mt. Katahdin in Maine 6 months later, you will feel like you're right there with her. Feel her excitement at her first bear sighting; her joy at finding trail magic and trail angels; her pain, as hiking miles and miles with a 30-pound backpack takes its toll on her feet and knees; her terror as she takes a tumble down a slick rock slab; learn the art of "yogi-ing" a meal; find out what it's like to sleep beside... More > a dog in an over-crowded shelter; savor the new and different cuisines she discovered; enjoy the views, the sunsets, the wild ponies, and the friends she made along the way. This book is well written, easy to read, and hard to put down! Don't miss this one!< Less
