About the Author

Dr. Karen Lord Rutter is a retired teacher and administrator with over 30 years in education whose work with students ranged from preschool through high school. Dr. Rutter has a passion for travel, children, and learning. This book was inspired when her son, David, thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail with the family dog, Copper. Her love of the Appalachian Trail was born after David invited her to hike a few short sections of the A.T. with him. Because of her passion for children and love of reading, she embarked upon her first foray into the world of writing for children. As an educator, it was important that she incorporate history, geography, enriched vocabulary, science, and math into Copper's story.
Dr. Rutter is a lifelong resident of Georgia, where the Appalachian Trail begins. She and her husband, Mike, have two adult children: David, who edited this story, and Mikella, who inspired the cover art and title.
