Reviews from Goodreads

Jennifer Pharr Davis and Haley Blevins; illustrations by Aliki Karkoulia

Jennifer Pharr Davis is a hiker, author, speaker, and National Geographic Adventurer of the Year. In 2011, Jennifer hiked the Appalachian Trail in 46 days, 11 hours, and 20 minutes—an average of 47 miles per day. She claimed the overall (male & female) fastest time on the “A.T.” and was the first woman to do so. She lives in Asheville, NC with her family.

After 14 years teaching, Haley Blevins took on a new challenge—hiking America’s longest trails: from the “A.T.” to the Continental Divide, and beyond. She now leads hikers of all backgrounds in Asheville, NC.

Aliki Karkoulia is an illustrator and artist from Greece. She is inspired by the world around her and has a deep passion to highlight its most wonderful parts.
