Books for the Hiker in Your Life

Far from the busy thoroughfares of modern life are trails that hug the terrain while also linking the present to our shared past, before the continent was tamed by roads, rails and airplanes. The granddaddy of modern trails was the brainchild of Benton MacKaye in 1906 – the 2200-mile long Appalachian Trail. Beloved by hikers and nature lovers, the trail was a radical experiment in volunteerism. Our Along the Appalachian Trail books celebrate segments of the longest hiking-only trail in the world. So take a hike … and wrap it up for the strider in your life.
