A walk through a substantial slice of the history embedded in the Appalachian Trail corridor from Underground Railroad sites and W.E.B. Du Bois' birthplace in New England to the Union occupation of present-day Hot Springs, N.C. Each site has a full-color map for a quick hike, and most have current and contemporary photographs. Extensively researched on foot and in library by a thru-hiker and now Appalachian Trail Conservancy trail-management staff member.
