Many an armchair hiker has dreamed of traversing the Appalachian Trail in its entirety. In 1979, David Brill became one of the first of a new generation to complete the Georgia-to-Maine hike. As Far as the Eye Can See chronicles his six-month, 2,100-mile walk, a quest to grow, to breathe, to change, to discover what really mattered to him. This book is for anyone interested in getting beyond the day-to-day slog of the hike to explore the emotional and spiritual dimensions of a long journey on foot.

Review: As Far As The Eye Can See: Reflections Of An Appalachian Trail Hiker

User Review  - Blaine Motsinger - Goodreads

This trail book read like a book, not a trail journal, which I've appreciated in other trail books. It skips around topically, instead of linearly. Not my favorite trail book, but still very very good. There were a couple parts in the book so well written, I felt as though I was there with him. Read full review
