If you’re a teacher, parent, student, history buff or outdoor enthusiast, here is a story that you’ll love, again and again. Meet Abel and Ethan Crawford as they build the Crawford Path in 1819. Glimpse wilderness America before paved roads existed. Imagine millions of now extinct Passenger Pigeons darkening the sky with flocks that took three days to pass. Learn how a moose’s bladder is a ready-made canteen. Hear how commerce developed in New England from paths to roads to railroads. Witness the founding of the Appalachian Mountain Club by professors from MIT. Get close to the White Mountain Trail Crew–the hardiest of elite young outdoorsmen, and women–and see what equipment they carry to maintain the trails. Watch them run up the mountains of a public park that is busier than Yellowstone, a place with the worst weather on earth.
