First Edition Thus; First Printing indicated. Trade Paperback. Hands down, the definitive guide to long-distance hiking in the United States. Schlimmer knows his stuff- he's a well accomplished long-distance hiker (like myself) and former Appalachian Trail caretaker and ridgerunner (a dream job). He chose some "underdog" trails here because they are NOT the Appalachian Trail. Type in "Appalachian Trail" on Amazon and see how many titles come up. I counted 293 of them. But how many books are out there on the Baker Trail, Mountains-to-Sea Trail, International Appalachian Trail, Shore-to-Shore Trail, Wonderland Trail, et al. Not many. The "Thru-Hiker's Guide to America" fills the long-distance void. With 25 trails to choose from located in more than half of the 50 states, Schlimmer's witty tone and informative style will make your backpacking wish list grow and grow First Edition Thus; First Printing indicated.
