    Great Read

    These two women, not only thru hike the Appalachian Trail, but they turn around and walk back home to Maine.

    Written in a form that would not let me put the book down.

    Couldn't put it down!

    Perhaps because I am a woman who has been on the AT, this was a book that I could not put down. Excellent account.

    Excellent book on Appalachian Trail hike...

    Second book rambles slightly more than the first book but both are entertaining and tie in some good information regarding the Appalachian Trail.

    The trail

    After reading dozens of books about the AT, i can truly say that this book really inspires me to hike the trail. I sure hope it comes a reality for me. Thank you
