Synopsis:

When a mismatched group of aspiring thru-hikers gather at the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, they form a bond as they head north on a 2,000-mile trek of bickering, romance, self discovery and gritty humor. Richard Judy, who thru-hiked the A.T. in 1973, rehiked the Trail in sections in the 21st century to rediscover his love for wilderness and to reimagine a lifetime of adventure in his novel, THRU: An Appalachian Trail Love Story. In a tale described as “beautiful and alive,” THRU captures the essence of the last great American adventure and answers the question posed by all thru-hikers: “What have I gotten myself into?” THRU is published by the Appalachian Trail Museum, which receives all proceeds.

From the Author:      THRU: An Appalachian Trail Love Story is about romantic love, love for the outdoors, love for the amazing culture of the A.T. and love and respect among the wacky and diverse community of thru-hikers -- those who choose to hike under unwashed, ill-fed, constantly extreme conditions and somehow manage to experience transcendent joy. THRU attempts to capture in fiction what I have lived for the past 50 years as a lover of trail hiking.      After hiking the A.T. twice (in 1973 as a thru-hiker, and in July 2014, when I wrapped up a 15-year section hike), I have encountered scores of gritty characters, amazing locations and truly outrageous circumstances discovered when spending months in the wilderness. I have hiked, bicycled and canoed all over America and the world -- never regretting a minute of it. My kids are both A.T. thru-hikers as well, proving that no matter how much a dad blathers on about his favorite topic assuming his kids are ignoring him, well, sometimes they actually listen.     THRU is my gift to the Appalachian Trail Museum which receives all proceeds. Every purchase is guaranteed to satisfy, because even if you find my prose to be lacking, at least you know the sale benefits a wonderful project dedicated to preserving culture, artifacts and memories of the world's greatest hiking trail. But I think if you are a thru-hiker, you will find the book to be an amusing sentimental journey. And if you are a dreamer who sometimes wonders what a 2,000-mile foot journey through the wilds of the Appalachians would be like, THRU will give you some sense of that.     THRU is my first novel. It flowed into the keyboard with alacrity, because it was a linear tale told in the character's own words. I drew upon decades of experience to mix and match personalities I have know -- or heard about -- with my own characters. Most are an amalgam of real people with a little imagination thrown in. I am working on a second novel which does not have an A to B progression. It takes much more energy and creativity I'm finding.     Feel free to visit my Facebook page and comment on the book or just watch the way I keep joining my friends to lead what I call the "Hiker's Life." If reading THRU entertains or inspires you, I have accomplished my mission.
