One of the premier tourist attractions of the eastern United
States, the Blue Ridge Parkway stretches from Shenandoah National
Park in Virginia to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in
western North Carolina. This volume relates the author's
one-of-a-kind backpacking trip along the 469-mile road, along with
his observations and recollections regarding the Parkway, the most
visited unit of the National Park Service. Beginning with his
experience as a summer college intern, the book also covers the
twelve years he spent working as a ranger on the Blue Ridge
Parkway. Anecdotal history and accounts from some of the Parkway's
earliest rangers complete this tale of one of our country's
national treasures. The appendix contains a chronological,
mile-by-mile re-creation of Pegram's 2003 trek, including the names
of all the Parkway landmarks mentioned in the book.
