" Never underestimate the vitality of a grandmother - this one hiked the Appalachian Trail in 1955 at age 67, in sneakers and a hand-sewn bag. " said.

" Inspiring story of a spunky older woman who hiked the Appalachian Trail. Good for talking to kids about perseverance and fulfilling your dreams, although some might lose interest because of the text-heavy narrative. " said.

" First woman to hike the Appalachian trail...at 67 in 1955. What a lady! " said.

" A super cute and colorful biography that is based on the adult book, "Grandma Gatewood's Walk."The illustrations showcase a richness of color -- much like you'd see if you were hiking during the spring, summer, or fall.Excellent! " said.

" Senior power and "girl" power meet in this picture book biography of Emma Gatewood, who at 67 became the first woman to travel solo successfully across the Appalachian Trail in one fell swoop. After a false try that included a meet-up with "bitey" blackflies, broken spectacles, and getting lost, Grandma tried again. But she did it! This story will inspire readers to get up their gumption to accomplish goals. Good back matter, too. " said.

"I was afraid my 3rd graders would tap out on Grandma Gatewood because it has a lot of text. Boy, was I wrong!! They were riveted by this story. Was it because she was from Ohio? Was it because she told off a bobcat? Was it because she braved the black flies? Was it because she was bound and determined to complete her Appalachian Trial hike? Was it because they could understand the stamina it took to complete it? Yes to all of these things! Although this book didn't make it very far on our March Madness Bracket, the kids still found value in it, and learned about someone definitely worth knowing!" said.

" Inspirational biography on Emma Gatewood who became the first woman to hike the Appalachian Trail. " said.

" Never underestimate the vitality of a grandmother - this one hiked the Appalachian Trail in 1955 at age 67, in sneakers and a hand-sewn bag. " said.
