Grandma Gatewood's Walk

by Ben Montgomery

Emma Gatewood was the first woman to hike the Appalachian Trail alone, the first person--man or woman--to walk it three times, and she did it all after the age of 65. This is the biography of Grandma Gatewood, as the reporters called her. Auther Ben Montgomery was given unprecedented access to Gatewood's own diaries, trail journals, and correspondence. The inspiring story of Emma Gatewood illustrates the power of the human spirit and determination
