13. Appalachian Trail Data Book
A consolidation of the most basic guidebook information into a lightweight 
table of distances between major Appalachian Trail shelters, road-crossings, 
and features--divided according to the guidebook volumes and updated each 
December to account 
for Trail relocations, new (or removed) shelters, and other changes. 

14. Appalachian Trail Thru-hikers' Companion
The Appalachian Trail Conference and a group of A.T. thru-hikers collaborate 
on a guide especially designed for potential thru-hikers who want the 
basicinformation for a five- to six-month trek in the woods, at a reasonable 
price, but also want the adventure of finding out the extras for themselves. 
With research by more than a dozen thru-hiker volunteers in 14 states, backed 
by the first-hand information of the 
Trail's volunteer and staff maintainers and managers.

All of the above can be ordered from the ATC's Ultimate Trail Store:

 Anyone want to do a simply listing, with some short reviews about each
