    I enjoyed this essay a lot! I went on to read a number of your other posts and now I’m going to sign up for your blog.
    I’ll enjoy the AT vicariously this way.

    I am enjoying your new book on MacKaye and Avery and will be reviewing it for the next issue of Appalachia. I have a question for you: how did MacKay’a original plan for the AT to end at Mt. Washington evolve so quickly (in the 1922 newspaper article) into the plan to take the trail into Maine? I’ve always thought it was Avery who pushed for Katahdin — and won, but it appears the Maine link was decided before he entered the picture. Did you uncover any insights?

    Thanks,
