In June 2000, Monique Dykstra set out to hike the brand new International Appalachian Trail, from Maine to Cap Gaspe, Quebec. A city girl, she thought that hiking was "simply a matter of throwing a few granola bars into a pack and heading for the hills." Two months, 1,073 km and countless blisters later, she was not so sure.This hilarious and moving narrative includes 50 colour photos and vivid descriptions of the characters Dykstra meets along the trail. It also contains a 24-page guide to the IAT.
