Appalachian Trail tale tops 2014 Outdoor Book Awards

OUTDOOR READING — They call her Grandma Gatewood.  She carries an umbrella, wears a checked skirt, and she loves to hike.

In fact, she is the first woman to hike the entire Appalachian Trail.  After her first 2,000-mile hike, she did it again, becoming the first person – man or woman – to hike it twice.  And then for good measure, she hiked it a third time.

Grandma Gatewood is the subject of a new book which is one of the award recipients of the 2014 National Outdoor Book Awards, announced today.
