Just Passin' Thru

A Vintage Store, the Appalachian Trail, and a Cast of Unforgettable Characters

Winton Porter

Description

Like a well-crafted stage play, Just Passin' Thru delivers one suspenseful scene after another. But in this historic setting — a store on the Appalachian Trail called Mountain Crossings — the characters who show up are no fictional creations. They are the real-life stars of the author’s new life as a backpack-purging, canteen-selling, hostel-running, bandage-taping, lost-child finding, argument-settling, romance-fixing, chili-making man of many faces. Like any good drama, there are the good guys (and gals) and the weirdos, too. Some show up once (and that’s enough), and some appear again and again. Some are friends, and some dangerous. But all are united by two things: the author’s story-capturing talent, and whatever it is that lures them to attempt (or conquer) a 2,200-mile path that climbs and plummets from Georgia to Maine.

Brad

Read This book, along with about 13 others, in preparation for my thru-hike in 2010. It was interesting and one of the better AT books. Actually met Winton on day 2 of my hike, and yes, they helped me send some stuff home and make my pack lighter.

Good read

This book wasn't what I expected. I thought it would be a book about a hike. Instead it was about a guy who owns a hiking store along the AT and he tells their stories as they pass through. I must say I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed this book.
