The Appalachian Trail Reader (Oxford Univ. Press, 1995)


"This beautifully literate compendium offers armchair travelers as sense of the trail's history; romance; and blood, sweat, and tears....The selections communicate the beauty and awe experienced on the trail."
--School Library Journal

"The collection nicely represents the range of writing about theTrail....For those interested in consulting a map of the Trail's narrative terrain, or in conducting initial explorations into its human and natural history, certainly The Appalachian Trail Reader is a good startingpoint."

"Speaking for myself, some of the most interesting items in this anthology were the Thru-Hiker Reports to the Appalachian Trail Conference, since these are not normally available in published form."
-- Linda Patton, Appalachian Trail Center, www.trailplace.com
