I picked up this book uninterested with long-distance hiking. By the time I had finished, I was contemplating packing my own backpack for the walk. To put it lightly, this book serves as the best inspiration. Drawn from first-hand experience and told with sometimes brutal honesty, you will have a solid understanding of the historic AT. Plus, it gives a great deal of background on the trail to put it all into perspective.
