The book "Hiking Through" was written by a thru-hiker who grew up in the
"plain people" community. His family started out in a very strict group and
changed their affiliation to more progressive groups as he got older. The
book is as interesting in terms of his accounts of growing up in that world
as it is about his thru-hike.
