Take a Hike! is the story of one man's journey on the twenty-one hundred and sixty-seven mile long Appalachian Trail. Tim Hewitt, whose trail name was Paddler, writes about trip planning and preparation and includes his daily journal for the six month adventure. He is joined by his thirteen year old son David for five weeks in the summer. David's journal and perspective are also included.
This book contains two short stories, inspired by my experiences thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine.
The Ugalu, a Cherokee Nation spirit-beast and Pamola, the Penobscot Nation demon-beast who inhabits the summit of Mount Katahdin.
