Let's start with recent books on the Appalachian Trail

There were half a dozen new memoirs of A.T. hikes published in 2005. The authors are evenly divided between male and female. One of the hikes was not a thru-hike, as you can tell from its title. I thought I'd start off by listing those six books:

Allnutt, Rick. A Wildly Successful 200-Mile Hike: Lessons Learned from the Appalachian Trail.” Beavercreek, Ohio: Wayah Press, 2005.

Martin, Danie. Always Another Mountain: A Woman Hiking the Appalachian Trail from Springer Mountain to Mount Katahdin.” College Station, Texas: Publishing, 2005.

Mass, Leslie. In Beauty May She Walk: Hiking the Appalachian Trail at 60.” Jacksonville, Fla.: Rock Spring Press, 2005.

Pittard, Patrick. Bearfoot, a Northbounder: E-mails from the Appalachian Trail.” Birmingham, Ala.: Will Publishing, 2005.

Richardson, James. Once Upon a Climb: One Man’s Journey on the Appalachian Trail.” SanAntonio, Texas: Booklocker Inc., 2005.

Shepherd, Nancy. My Own Hike: A Woman’s Journey on the Appalachian Trail.” Morrisville, NC:, 2005.

Click on a title to find ordering information. If you'd like to just read the book with purchasing it, and it's not available at your local library, ask a staff member about "Interlibrary Loan."
