Default Origin of Place Names Along the AT By David Lillard

The Origin of Place Names Along the AT
By David Lillard

A concise, backpack friendly guide that explains the origins of some 1100 place names hikers come across as they make their way along the Appalachian Trail. Filled with fascinating facts, surprising stories, and colorful trivia, it also offers insight into the trail's long and legendary history, as well as the history of the wilderness preservation movement, and of the country itself. Entries are arranged alphabetically for easy reference. Answers the questions "Where did that name come from?" and "What in the world does it mean?" A one-of-a-kind guide for hikers and AT enthusiasts.
I think this sounds like it would be fun!
