    "Lost on The Appalachian Trail" is a good read, also the same Author put out a new one which I haven't read yet called "Hear the Challenge".

    Grandma Gatewoods Walk. She was a very interesting character.

    I'm new and don't know anything.... but I feel like I learned a good bit from Andrew Skurka's Ultimate Backpacker's Guide. I understand he has recently or soon will release an update since it's a bit old now.

    The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, by Stephen King. Tangentially about the AT....

    Walking with Spring, by Earl Shaffer - the original thru hiker. An excellent read.
