- 46 Days: Keeping Up With Jennifer Pharr Davis on the Appalachian Trail features personal photographs from the journey and a foreward and afterword by Jen
Made in USA.
Jennifer Pharr Davis had already hiked the Appalachian Trail twice, and even became the women�s record holder for the fastest thru-hike on the second trek. But that wasn�t enough: the mountains were calling her name once again, and she couldn�t resist. In the summer of 2011, 28 yr. old Jennifer set out on her greatest challenge yet—breaking the men�s record to become the fastest person ever to hike the AT. The time to beat?
47 days, 13 hrs. and 31 min.
46 days chronicles the daily trials and triumphs of Jennifer Pharr Davis�s record-setting thru-hike as seen through the loving and humorous eyes of her husband, Brew Davis. Brew led Jen�s devoted �Pit Crew,� the group of generous hikers who supported her along the way, providing her with company on the epic trail and as much food as she could stomach. Experience the trek with Jen and Brew as they tackle shin splints, a stomach scare that threatens to end the attempt early and wildlife at every turn. But with every hardship comes an equally gratifying moment that only the AT can deliver. The views are spectacular, and the victories are uplifting.
