Trail along on this 2,000-mile, bliss-and-blister adventure away from interstates and into backwoods America. Cross the Smokies, survive Virginia floods, buck New Jersey heat, walk the Presidentials of the White Mountains, and traverse a mile-long gorge. Then, 150 days later, stand victorious on the summit of Mount Katahdin in Maine. Appalachian Odyssey has everything—and then some—about the great hike. Inspiring for all ages whether you’re a backpacker or an armchair hiker.
Appalachian Odyssey was awarded the Honorable Mention in the Outdoor Classic category by the 2009 National Outdoor Book Awards (NOBA). The Outdoor Classic Award is presented annually to an “unusual and lasting” book that over time has proven to be a significant work in the field.
