End to Ending: An Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker's Story by Tanner Critz
Author: Tanner Critz
A true story, this book chronicles the transformation of a young man as he walks the 2000 mile Appalachian Trail. On his six and a half month journey through the woods, Critz takes on the trail name Wayah (Cherokee for wolf) and sheds his old life. Between making new friends and extreme physical challenges, Critz shows us his journey as he wound his way ever northward over the mountains and through the seasons of 1995, living a better, sweatier way, laughing until his belly hurt, and finding new beauty in this land and this life.
