Praise For Grandma Gatewood Hikes the Appalachian Trail…
"Quite a few of the softly colored, cartoony, watercolor-and-colored pencil spreads will have readers packing their own backpacks, most notably those of McAfee Knob, the backwoods night sky, and the top of Katahdin . . . An inspiring story for readers of all ages and genders."
— Kirkus Reviews
"Beautiful illustrations and an emphasis on the value of nature, determination, and grit make this a great nonfiction selection."
— School Library Journal
"This story of determination is also an ode to the principle of walking down a road just to see what one can see."
