FROM FILMMAKER SAM HENEGAR
The Appalachian Trail's history fascinates me, and this living project is fueled by an uncommon volunteer philosophy. AT volunteers and supporters would never seek to create a film highlighting their altruistic nature, so I felt they needed to be honored, and their story told. I hope this project will develop a deeper appreciation of the Appalachian Trail and help to continue its priceless legacy.
A portion of the net revenue (10%) generated by this project is contributed to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. Rest assured that each purchase supports the AT.
