|A Season on the Appalachian Trail||1|
Posted July 29, 2001
Lynn Setzer makes no claims to being a Thru-Hiker. A rare, mysterious title a select few earn every year in the course of Hiking The Appalachian trail. From my view point as someone who has hiked some 800 miles of the trail in the company of many people who have earned that title I think it safe to say Setzer managed to capture what it is to be a Thru Hiker. Anyone who has spent time Hiking on the Appalachian trail will greatly appriciate the stories of the Hikers Setzer interviewd and have numerous moments of halarity mixed with moments of somber reflection. It made me so wish to get back out on the trail it was all I could do not to throw on my pack and head out the door. A word of caution, some of the meaning packed in this book may be lost on the uninitiated. Those who have experienced life on the trail will likely get more from this book than those who have not. However, that by no means keeps it from being a very worthwhile read for anyone interested in learning more about the Appalachian Trail and what it means to Thru-Hike.Was this review helpful?
