Well-organized, beginning with the trail's history, moving through planning and equipment/food, injuries and first aid, etc.
Also covered are animal issues, sanitation and etiquette.
The final chapter lists some information about portions of the trail which might be interesting to those who only wish to hike certain pieces of the trail.
Most useful are the appendices, which provide necessary information about equipment manufacturers, Post Offices near the trail, ATC trail-maintaining clubs and maps.
Retired Colonel Curran explains and details the successful methods and gear that he used on his Appalachian Trail hikes.
Filled with useful advice and knowledge, this book is good for planning a thru-hike or just a week long trip.
