A long-time chairman of the Appalachian National Scenic Trail Advisory Council, Charles H.W. Foster, tells the “the inside story” of the Trail project and protection of the footpath.
From the back cover:
The Trail represents an experiment in bioregionalism, but also a great experiment in governmental protection coupled with volunteer management, the story follows the progression from early sporadic and visionary efforts by individual citizens, trail clubs and states, to the formal efforts to establish, protect, and manage the Trail that began with the authorization of a national scenic trail in 1968 and culminated in a complex process of land acquisition and major cooperative management agreement signed in 1984.
