Sharon Hall, a friend of our “Trail Magic” script writer Kelly Boyer Sagert let us know about this great blog site that features her story about Emma Gatewood.
Check out Sharon’s article about Emma Gatewood at http://historydepot.wordpress.com/2014/09/12/feisty-females-grandma-gatewood-part-i Enjoy!
This is the first of four short segments that feature Anne McEvoy as Grandma Gatewood. This was recorded at a rehearsal for the play of the same name that was staged last summer at TrueNorth Cultural Arts Center. The play was written as a first person narrative that presents Emma Gatewood’s persona and wit. The play was written by Kelly Boyer Sagert and helps provide scripting for the “Trail Magic” documentary now in production.
Eden Valley Enterprises will be co-hosting with “Women Making Moves” several live “Ohio Women, Then and Now” for Women’s history month presentations as a fundraiser for the documentary.

Our 3 minute contest video was edited for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy “I am the Appalachian Trail” video contest. The ATC contest features many videos that share a personal view point about the hikers experience. We decided that we should enter Emma Gatewood, whose story has helped shape a generation of hikers trail experiences. We used some footage from our upcoming documentary “Trail Magic” to give Emma’s journal’s a voice.
