When Clay Bonnyman Evans — aka Pony — set out on the Appalachian Trail in March 2016, he intended only to walk as far as he could get by Memorial Day, and save the rest for another year. But once he got started, he fell in love with the trail, the terrain and, most of all, his fellow thru-hikers, and he knew he'd go crazy if he didn't finish. The Trail is the Teacher is the story of his inadvertent flip-flop journey — northbound from Georgia to Vermont, then southbound from mighty Katahdin in Maine — the people he met, the trials and triumphs he walked through, and the many lessons the trail has to teach. Written with wry humor, deep reverence for the land, and heartfelt love for the long-distance hiking community, this vivid memoir reveals the many ways that engaging with people in the wilderness can ease the human heart and restore hope.
