The Appalachian Trail: A Biography by Philip D'Anieri is a non-fiction book written by Philip D'Anieri..[1][2][3]Contrary to other non-fiction books on the trail, Philip has written this book about the trail as biography and not as a guidebook or a history book.[1] In the biography, Philip D' Anieri, who is a lecturer at University of Michigan[4] has mentioned multiple personalities that have a substantial significance in the trail's history.[2] In the book, the author has also discovered the stories of the Appalachian Trail founders and their motivation.[4]


The New York Times has referred to The Appalachian Trail: A biography as " D’Anieri’s stalwart biography makes clear — that the work of humans, even a mere ribbon of dirt along an ancient ridgeline, will always bear the contradictions and complications of those whose hands — and feet — made it."[3] Discover (magazine) also wrote "the Appalachian Trail acts as a portal into another world."[5]Thomas Urquhart also gave a positive review, appreciating author's original approach and referred to the book as a satisfying biography at Press herald [6]
