Going it Alone by Rahawa Haile
“What happens when an African American woman decides to solo-hike the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine during a summer of bitter political upheaval? Everything you can imagine, from scary moments of racism to new friendships to soaring epiphanies about the timeless value of America’s most storied trekking route.”
I heard of this on the radio and was struck that there might another reason besides being anti-nature that kept people from going out. Seriously though, this is an excellent read and I heartily recommend it. I hope it’s acceptable to share in this manner.
