The Book

A Hike on the Appalachian Trail, written by Carolyn Cook and Doug Cook;  Illustrated by Beau Bowersox. (Baltimore: Publish America, 2010).

As an avid outdoorswoman, Carolyn Cook led her students yearly on an Appalachian Trail hike as the culmination of a unit on the environment. As the book opens, Jay and Jenna are excited because they will be taking a hike on the Appalachian Trail. They hike to the Birch Run Shelter to eat lunch and rest, learning about the trail habitat along the way. After lunch they participate in a number of learning activities about the environment.  The book also provides numerous facts about the animals, insects and plants which call the AT home.

Dr. Carolyn Cook is currently assistant professor of Education at Mount St. Mary's University. Dr Doug Cook is Instruction Librarian and Professor at Ship.
