Description

In the period 1936-1973, a total of 181 people hiked the 2,119-mile Appalachian Trail. Julia Older was the 19th woman to do so, when she and Steve Sherman hiked it in one outing in 1973. Now, 400-600 men, women and children hike the now 2,174-mile trail end to end. Older’s and Sherman’s odyssey was transformative and added a new dimension to the awakening American conscience for the preservation and moral use of our natural resources. 248 pages
