I found this little gem amongst the books my father collected on the AT 30 years ago... Great pics, and a fun story.

This was back when less than 20 people a year were completing the trail... it was really very novel.

Much of the book is devoted to what the author learned and photographed in the areas around the trail... He seemed to do a series of section hikes and spend time at regional events.

Quite a delightful version of looking at the trail from times not too far past.

The book is out of print, but copies are available for about $5 from amazon as used books. Not too bad for a 200 page hardback glossy book!
