Becoming Odyssa - Hardcover


Product Description

Setting out alone, Jenn transitions from overconfident college grad to Trail student, finding kindness, humor, sadness, and situations she never imagined ahead of time. An extraordinarily well-written account by an extraordinary hiker. Jen went on to hike twice more, finishing in 2011 in less than 46 1/2 days.

A 2012 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year

Also available in paperback.

From the cover:

After graduating from college, Jennifer isn’t sure what she wants to do with her life. She is drawn to the Appalachian Trail, a 2,175-mile footpath that stretches from Georgia to Maine. Though her friends and family think she’s crazy, she sets out alone to hike the trail, hoping it will hive her time to think about what she wants to do next.
The next four months are the most physically and emotionally challenging of her life. She quickly discovers that thru-hiking is harder than she had imagined: coping with blisters and aching shoulders from the 30-pound pack she carries; sleeping on the hard wooden floors of the trail shelters; hiking through endless torrents of rain and even a blizzard.

Jennifer Pharr Davis. Second edition, 2010.
