about

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.
