Looks like a couple people already wrote the book I was thinking about creating: Appalachian Pages, a thru-hikers’ guide for the Appalachian Trail. The real winning idea here, the one that I wanted to see, was having the elevation profile watermarked on each page so you can sneak a peek at the day’s challenges in a glance:

Thank God they saved me the work. It looks great. If I ever end up on the AT again, I wouldn’t be surprised if I carried this book instead of the classic AT Data Book.

  1. Hi Mark, I’m the publisher of App Pages, thanks for doing this write-up. If you don’t have the 2009 edition and would like one, please let me know and I’ll send you a complimentary book. I’ll also send “Awol on the AT” if it looks like something you’d be interested in. I’m also a reader and so purused some of your reviews. Right on with “Devil in the White City.” Promising, but too much foreshadowing. I’m looking to create an advert piece with quotes about App Pages. Please email me if it would be okay to use something from you like “A real winning idea.”Sincerly, David Miller
