Jeanie McClellan Hines
Jeannie McClellan Hines has always enjoyed adventures in the out of doors. She grew up near Annapolis, Maryland in a family that was active in scouting, her grandmother was even a "Professional Girl Scout."

When Jeannie graduated from Northeastern University she accepted a position at the regional Veterans Administration Hospital in White River Junction, Vermont. After hiking in the mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont, and in particular hiking Vermont's Long Trail which runs from the Canadian border to the Massachusetts state line, she made a commitment to hike the entire length of the Appalachian Trail. After spending months planning and preparing, in March of 1997 Jeannie stepped out onto the AT and headed for Mount Katahdin in Maine.

Off the trail Jeannie is back at her job at the VA hospital. Known to her friends as an awesome mountain biker, Jeannie spends much of her spare time hiking and biking. In the winter she enjoys downhill skiing and is on the ski patrol at two of the local ski areas.

Jeannie lives in New Hampshire with her husband Rick, their chocolate lab, Sadie and a grey tiger cat, Rosie.

Trail Magic: Journal of an Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker
Jeanie McClellan Hines
Trail Magic is based on a journal the author kept during her thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in the spring and summer of 1997. In this delightful book, the reader learns about the pain of blisters, sore knees, the beauty of sunsets, cold snow, hot and humid days, blueberry pancakes, Ramen noodles, pizza, the support of friends, the pain of separation from those we love, the motivation and support that come from knowing someone you love will be waiting for you up the trail.

The reader will appreciate the joy and satisfaction the author experiences after having walked in good weather and bad, on sunny days and rainy days, up steep mountains and down gentle woodland paths for more than 2,000 miles from Georgia to the top of Mount Katahdin, Baxter State Park, Maine.
