Part guidebook and part exploration into literary history, this book explores how natural surroundings inspired works of literature set along the Appalachian Trail. The author examines how our modern estrangement from the natural world has affected our mental well-being.

MEDIA REVIEWS

In Peak Experiences the narrator is extremely compelling, a guy we want to hike with, talk to, study literature with. He shows courage in difficult times, but is wonderfully self-deprecating. He has important things to say about serious subjects, but he's also funny. He thinks carefully about difficult issues, but is no brooder. He knows when it's time for a walk.--Scott Slovic, author of "Seeking Awareness in American Nature Writing" Audubon Naturalist News, July-August 2003
