About Appalachian Odyssey: A 28-Year Hike on America's T

Lets celebrate the Centennial year of the White Mountain National Forest, Author Jeffrey Ryan of "Appalachian Odyssey: A 28-Year Hike on America's Trail" and "Blazing Ahead: Benton MacKaye, Myron Avery and the Rivalry that built the Appalachian Trail" will visit the Whitney Community Center in Jackson, New Hampshire to share his Appalachian Trail (AT) adventures and how his "AT" trek took him over 28 years.

Writing "Appalachian Odyssey" kindled yet another adventure for Ryan. Intrigued by how the Appalachian Trail was conceived and built, he dove into archival materials to create his second book: "Blazing Ahead: Benton MacKaye, Myron Avery and the Rivalry that built the Appalachian Trail". Published in 2017 by Appalachian Mountain Club Books, his history of the trail explores the personal, political and economic uncertainties that often stood in the way of progress and how they were overcome to make the trail a reality.

Appalachian Odyssey and Blazing Ahead will be available for purchase at the event and Jeffrey would be delighted to sign copies.
