Format: Paperback
I bought this book in 1972 while on vacation in the Smokies, and it introduced me to the sport of backpacking as well as to the Appalachain Trail. Info is now very dated but it was an extremely good guide in '72. This book gives a pretty good introduction to backpacking equipment (of that time) & techniques for the novice, as well as a day-to-day journal of Mr. Garvey's hike. Very well written, very entertaining. Am surprised and delighted to see he is still going stong 25 years later. I've wanted to say this for 25 years: Thank you, Mr. Garvey!
