Overview

 

In 2011, Jennifer Pharr Davis became the overall record holder on the Appalachian Trail. By hiking 2,181 miles in 46 days - an average of 47 miles per day - she became the first female to ever set that mark. But this is not a book about records or numbers; this is a book about endurance and faith, and most of all love.

The most amazing part of this story is not found at the finish, but is discovered through the many challenges, lessons and relationships that present themselves along the trail. This is Jennifer's story, in her own words, about how she started this journey with a love for hiking and more significantly a love for her husband Brew. Together, they were able to overcome rugged mountains and raging rivers, sleet storms and 100 degree heat, shin-splints and illnesses. They made new friends and tested old friendships; they shared together laughter, and tears - a lot of tears. But, through it all, they fell more in love with one another and with the wilderness.

By completing this extraordinary amateur feat, Jennifer rose above the culture of multi-million dollar sports contracts that is marked by shortcuts and steroids. This is the story of a real person doing something remarkable. Jennifer Pharr Davis is a modern role-model for women - and men. She is an authentic hero.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Davis, an Ashville, N.C., native and intrepid hiker, returns to the Appalachian Trail (Becoming Odyssa) to chronicle in this modest work, her record-breaking hike in 2011 from Maine to North Carolina in just over 46 days—2,181 miles at an average of 47 miles a day. After a devastating heartbreak in 2007 at age 24, Davis plunged back into her hiking as a way of healing and finding new purpose, making short work of Vermont’s 272-mile Long Trail by herself in August 2007. With her husband Brew, the newlyweds resolved to take on the Appalachian Trail together, he accompanying her as support as she aimed to attack first the women’s record in August 2008, then the men’s record set by Andrew Thompson in 2005. In June 2011, Davis set out again, but this time the trail and pace proved grueling, and she developed ailments including shin splints and gastrointestinal upsets. She infuses her straightforward account with spiritual elements, deeming her hiking adventures a kind of Christian “calling” by using her “gift and talents to their fullest potential.” In the end, this account will inspire others to take to the trails. (June)

    In its own way this is Orwell for the 21st century. Yes, the cat is cute, yes the story is a simple one. But it's genuinely revealing about the kind of life led by people who live at the bottom of society's net - if not underneath it. It's plainly.
