Product description

Book Description

Jamie Jensen, author of the best-selling travel guide Road Trip USA, brings you this in-depth exploration of the sights and wonders along the Appalachian Trail --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

JAMIE JENSEN has been immersed in road trip culture from an early age, thanks to a childhood spent drinking drive-in milk shakes and riding roller coasters in Los Angeles -- before they tore everything down. After a three-year stint hitchhiking around the country, making hay in Kansas, sailing boats on the Chesapeake Bay, painting houses in Boston, and living in the storeroom of a Manhattan music studio, he returned to California and earned a degree in Architecture from UC Berkeley, and then moved to England, where he began writing about America. He has since written an authorized biography of the Grateful Dead and contributed to numerous travel books on the USA.

He now lives in Northern California, at the west end of US-50.

I have a real problem with this book. I intended to spend 4-5 days following the Pennsylvania / Maryland / Virginia piece of the Appalachians and bought this book as a guide

The book itself is very slim - with scant information - but it made it very readable so while it would have been nice to have more info I was ok with that, and I did enjoy the book prior to the trip

However, on the trip itself I spent 3-4 days without seeing much of a hill never mind Appalachian mountains

The reality was such that my wife asked me seriously " did this author actually come here ?"

The town of Reading, for example is titled in the book the "Outlet Capital of the World".....I drove around for an hour, asking about outlets to no avail - and finally found one outlet mall - pretty deserted on a Sunday afternoon - and the comment that "yeah Reading did have more outlets at one time but they closed down"

We salvaged our time by spending an excellent day in Amish country near Lancaster - which the book doesnt nearly do enough justice to - and we made a slight detour to Gettysburg which was wonderful - but alas doesnt merit a mention in the book although the detour is but a few miles

poor !

I used this book to great effect when planning an all too short trip onto the Appalachian Trial and wished I could've stayed longer. The book gives information not just about the trial but sights and shopping and restaurants and motels on the way, all done with great little picture postcards & maps encouraging you to go further afield. If, no when, I return to this area, I will have this book held tightly in my hands.

well written with lots of advice along the way for places of interest and stopovers

This is a good book if traveling the Appalachian Trail. There were several places listed in this book that I didn't find with internet searches. I like that it's compact. So, if you like books and are roadtripping the Appalachian Trail - then this is a nice resource
