After hiking the AT from Maine to Georgia, Lucy and Susan Letcher decided that the best way to get home would be to turn around and hike it again. So they did-barefoot, of course-but this time, they encountered hardships and joys they didn?t expect at all. This second half of the Barefoot Sisters? account has become an AT classic.

"One of the most charming Appalachian Trail narratives that I have ever come across. . . . An amazing journey that offers a glimpse of just how hard hiking day after day can be and just how much fun you can have while you are doing something so physically and mentally demanding."
