In 1976 Sherman and Older co-authored Appalachian Odyssey: Walking the Trail from Georgia to Maine after co-hiking through 14 states on the Appalachian Trail.

Trail along on this 2,000 mile, bliss-and-blister adventure away from Interstates and into backwoods America. Cross the Smokies, survive Virginia floods, buck New Jersey heat, walk the Presidentials of the White Mountains, and a mile-deep gorge.

Then, 150 days later, stand victorious on the summit of Mount Katahdin in Maine. Everything and then some about The Great Hike.

Inspiring for all ages whether you’re a backpacker or armchair hiker. Appalachian Odyssey is not only readable and human but cleansing and replenishing.

Recommended reading for through-hiker and day-tripper alike.
