About the Author
During her 1995 hike, Beverly Hugo was selected to be featured on a two-part outdoor series for the Public Broadcasting System called, "Trailside: Make Your Own Adventure." She also was written about in Appalachian Adventure, a hard-cover book compiled by reporters, editors, and photographers from five eastern newspapers who took a "tag-team" thru-hike that year. Sadly, on a short hike in 2000, Beverly fell, and a brain tumor was discovered. She died the following spring but had asked the Appalachian Trail Conservancy to keep her research and findings alive. Thousands have benefitted from her work since.

The book is conveniently organized into before, during, and after. The before is the necessary preparation for months on the trail, both practically and psychologically. During is how to survive and thrive on the trail. After is about how life may be different after such a profound and personal achievement. The narrative is loaded with the observations of experienced female hikers, and the stories might be worth the price of admission by themselves. Highly recommended.
This is a rare gem of a book on the subject of Thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail and I appreciated it very much!
