Since publishing the first edition of this book twenty years ago, Johnny Molloy has written sixty – count ‘em! - hiking books covering twenty-six states but centering in the Appalachian South! He now lives in Johnson City, Tennessee. This book is more memoir than trail guide, an engrossing and endearing set of recollections of life on the trail and in the campground that tells a lot about the trails, but even more about how Johnny Molloy enjoyed them.
