DESCRIPTION

Emma Gatewood advised her household she was happening a stroll and left her small Ohio hometown with a change of garments and fewer than $200. The following anyone heard from her, this genteel, farm-reared, 67-year-old great-grandmother had walked 800 miles alongside the two,050-mile Appalachian Path. And in September 1955, atop Maine’s Mount Katahdin, she sang the primary verse of “America, the Lovely” and proclaimed, “I stated I am going to do it, and I’ve performed it.” Grandma Gatewood, because the reporters referred to as her, grew to become the primary girl to hike the whole Appalachian Path alone, in addition to the primary individual – man or girl – to stroll it twice and thrice. The general public consideration she dropped at the little-known footpath was unprecedented. Her vocal criticism of the awful, tough stretches led to bolstered upkeep, and really possible saved the path from extinction.
