Superb History of the Trail and Section-Hiker's Guide

This well-written book is not only useful, but it's also fun to read. The author obviously did a ton of research on the formation of the trail, its founders, and its purpose -- a linear park system accessible to city-dwellers on the east coast. Mr. Chase includes a lot of useful information about sections of the AT, but this book is not one you'd use in place of a map or a trail guide. Instead, it characterizes the sections state-by-state, giving readers an idea of the feel of the terrain and what it's like to hike each part. It's really useful when picking a section for a trip, and to give hikers some very satisfying background information on the guys who thought up our beloved AT! The newly updated edition of the book also improved on the information included in the older version. If you just want a trail guide, look elsewhere. But if you're looking for a book that puts the AT in context and helps pick areas for dayhikes or longer section hikes, this is the book for you!
