Unlike Thoreau, who "went to the woods in order to live deliberately," author Christine Byl ended up there by accident, after graduating from college and realizing she had no idea what she wanted to do with her life. In this memoir, she recounts her experiences as a "traildog" -- one of the many seasonal workers who maintain hiking trails in national parks -- first in Montana's Glacier National Park and later in Alaska's Denali National Park. In this fascinating account of a little-known subculture of dirt, sweat, and unparalleled natural beauty, Byl describes how she spent her traildog days clearing brush, creating paths, digging trenches, building bridges, and completing countless other tasks that go largely unnoticed by park visitors, yet are essential for their recreation.
