Emma Gatewood told her family she was going on a walk and left her small Ohio hometown with a change of clothes and less than two hundred dollars. The next anybody heard from her, this genteel, farm-reared, 67-year-old great-grandmother had walked 800 miles along the 2,050-mile Appalachian Trail. By September 1955 she stood atop Maine's Mount Katahdin, sang "America, the Beautiful," and proclaimed, "I said I'll do it, and I've done it." Driven by a painful marriage, Grandma Gatewood, became the first woman to hike the entire Appalachian Trail alone, as well as the first person-man or woman-to walk it twice and three times. At age 71, she hiked the 2,000-mile Oregon Trail. Gatewood became a hiking celebrity, and appeared on TV with Groucho Marx and Art Linkletter. The public attention she brought to the trail was unprecedented. Her vocal criticism of the lousy, difficult stretches led to bolstered maintenance, and very likely saved the trail from extinction. Author Ben Montgomery interviewed surviving family members and hikers Gatewood met along the trail, unearthed historic newspaper and magazine articles, and was given unprecedented access to Gatewood's own diaries, trail journals, and correspondence. Grandma Gatewood's Walk shines a fresh light on one of America's most celebrated pedestrians. Ben Montgomery is a staff writer at the Tampa Bay Times and co-founder of the Auburn Chautauqua, a Southern writers' collective. He was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2010 and has won many other national writing awards. He lives in Florida.

Emma Gatewood’s life was far from easy. In rural Ohio, she managed a household of 11 kids alongside a less-than-supportive husband. One day, at age 67, she decided to go for a nice long walk . . . and ended up completing the Appalachian Trail. With just the clothes on her back and a pair of thin canvas sneakers on her feet, Grandma Gatewood hiked up ridges and down ravines. She braved angry storms and witnessed breathtaking sunrises. When things got particularly tough, she relied on the kindness of strangers or sheer luck to get her through the night. When the newspapers got wind of her amazing adventure, the whole country cheered her on to the end of her trek, which came just a few months after she set out. A story of true grit and girl power at any age, Grandma Gatewood proves that no peak is insurmountable.

With only a backpack of worldly possessions, the distance hiker is acutely aware of need over want. Long and silent contemplation through unspoiled woods allows him to reconnect with the Creator, shedding fears, doubts, and anxieties while his ongoing physical efforts reduce his body weight, high blood pressure, borderline diabetes, and other chronic ailments and chemical dependencies. He steps with purpose. He is freed. With this newfound freedom, he allows himself to be open and vulnerable with others. A supportive community forms among hikers who are experiencing the same freedom. Ramble On finds our physical and spiritual center while hiking the Appalachian Trail. As a minister and a physical therapist for three decades, Tom Hafer has cultivated a unique approach to our health and wellness through synergizing the physical and the spiritual aspects of our lives. He is the author of six books: Faith & Fitness, Well Planet, Aging Grace, Soul Man, When You Pray, Move Your Feet, and Ramble On. He travels and speaks about ways to care for ourselves to better care for others. His website is

익숙했던 모든 것들이 낯설어지기 위해 떠날 뿐이다 [씨네21] 이다혜 기자의 첫 여행에세이 떠올리는 것만으로도 마음이 달뜨는 순간들이 있다. 비행기표를 끊는 순간, 휴가계를 내는 순간, 비행기에서 와인 한 잔을 받아든 순간…. 뭔가 대단한 경험이나 자아 찾기를 할 수 있어서 여행을 탐닉하는 게 아니다. 그 어떤 것을 하더라도, 일단 집이 아닌 곳에 있다는 사실에 좀 견딜 수 있을 듯한 기분이 된다. 여행이란 예정대로 되지 않는 일들을 평소보다 조금 더 유연하고, 가볍고, 즐겁게 받아들이게 되는 과정이 아닐까. 이곳에서의 삶을 위한 떠나기. 지금 또다시 여행을 준비하는 이유.
