Few areas of American wilderness are more impressive than the Appalachian Trail, with its extraordinary scenery stretching nearly 2,200 miles and covering 250,000 acres from Maine to Georgia. Maintenance of the trail depends in part on more than 6,000 volunteers who devote considerable time, energy, and personal resources to the task. These volunteers donated the gorgeous images for this book and seek to promote awareness and good stewardship of the trail. The postcards are detachable for use, or can be retained in the book as a keepsake of the Appalachian Trail and a reminder of the majesty of America's unspoiled areas.
