Predating the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Appalachian Trail was established in the 1920s. Yet even after volunteers had begun the pathway's construction, its southern terminus was still undetermined. The more than 200 vintage photographs of Images of America: Along the Appalachian Trail: Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee have been culled from the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, National Park Service, local trail maintaining clubs, state archives, and historical societies. They illustrate the sweat, toil, and dedication that went into building the trail over some of Eastern America's highest and most rugged terrain. Also chronicled are the people who lived along the trail's route, those who volunteered to physically build it or lobby for its creation, and the many relocations that have moved the pathway to optimal locations.

At the age of 41 after a lifetime spent attempting to please others, Jill Altman embarked on a journey to honor her own feelings and desires by hiking the entire 2,174-mile Appalachian Trail in one year (called thru-hiking). The story of her adventure not only illustrates her roller coaster ride through love, fear, and everything in between, but also chronicles the daily trials and tribulations in the life of a thru-hiker. Ultimately she uncovered how her commitment to her goal of reaching and summiting the final mountain, Mount Katahdin in Maine, actually stood between her and her real purpose in hiking the trail.

"The Appalachian Trail was proposed by Benton MacKaye in 1921. Over a quarter of the Georgia-to-Maine pathway passes through Virginia, going across some of the state's best mountain scenery and affording access to small-town life. Now a component of the National Park Service, the trail was, and still is, primarily built, maintained, and overseen by volunteers. Selected from the archives of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, the National Park Service, and local Appalachian Trail maintenance clubs, the approximately 200 photographs in Images of America: Along Virginia's Appalachian Trail provide a look at life in the mountains before and during the trails creation, how it developed, who its early champions were, the many relocations the trail has experienced, and the volunteers who have constructed and maintained it"--Back cover.

The virgin forests of the Smokies, the pasturelands of Pennsylvania, the abandoned stagecoach roads of Connecticut, and the exposed craggy peaks of New Hampshire's White Mountains are only some of the vistas that await the backpacker -- whether of the real or armchair variety -- hiking along the 2000 mile footpath known as the Appalachian Trail. Robert A. Browne, the hiker in this book, describes not only the flora and fauna he finds along the way, but delves into local history and ecology, and shares his experiences with the many characters he meets along the way. In some respects, this journey is a personal experience set in a certain time and place, but in others, it is a timeless journey that can be shared by all.

The Appalachian Trail, a thin ribbon of wilderness running through the densely populated eastern United States, offers a refuge from modern society and a place apart from human ideas and institutions. But as environmental historian�and thru-hiker�Sarah Mittlefehldt argues, the trail is also a conduit for community engagement and a model for public-private cooperation and environmental stewardship. In Tangled Roots, Mittlefehldt tells the story of the trail�s creation. The project was one of the first in which the National Park Service attempted to create public wilderness space within heavily populated, privately owned lands. Originally a regional grassroots endeavor, under federal leadership the trail project retained unprecedented levels of community involvement. As citizen volunteers came together and entered into conversation with the National Parks Service, boundaries between �local� and �nonlocal,� �public� and �private,� �amateur� and �expert� frequently broke down. Today, as Mittlefehldt tells us, the Appalachian Trail remains an unusual hybrid of public and private efforts and an inspiring success story of environmental protection. Watch the trailer:
