At the ages of 25 and 21, Lucy and Susan Letcher set out to accomplish what thousands of people attempt each year: through hike the entire 2,175 mi. of the Appalachian Trail. The difference between them and the others? They decided to hike the trail barefoot. Quickly earning themselves the moniker of the Barefoot Sisters, the two begin their journey at Mount Katahdin and spent 8 months making their way to Springer Mountain in Georgia. As they hike, they write about their adventures through the 100 Mile Wilderness, the rocky terrain of Pennsylvania, and snowfall in the Great Smoky Mountains—a story filled with humor and determination. It's as close as one can get to hiking the Appalachian Trail without strapping on a pack.
