Meet the Author

Jennifer Pharr Davis grew up in the North Carolina Mountains, where she developed a love for hiking from childhood. She has trekked more than 8,000 miles of trails in North America, including the Pacific Crest Trail, Vermont’s Long Trail, and the Colorado Trail, and completed two thru-hikes on the Appalachian Trail. On many international trips, she has tred iconic paths that include Mount Kilimanjaro, the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, and the 600-mile Bibbulmun Track in Australia.

Jennifer holds endurance records on three long-distance trails. In 2008 she became the fastest woman to hike the Appalachian Trail, averaging 38 miles a day and completing the trail in 57 days.

An accomplished book author with two other outdoor guides--Best Easy Day Hikes Charlotte and Best Hikes Near Charlotte--to her credit, Jennifer completed her memoir, Becoming Odyssa: Epic Adventures on the Appalachian Trail, for its debut from Beaufort Books in 2010.

In addition, Jennifer has written for Trail Runner magazine, Away.com, and is a frequent contributor to Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine. She lives in Asheville, North Carolina, with her husband, and is the owner and founder of Blue Ridge Hiking Co.
