Cultural barriers and discrimination oppressed Emma “Grandma” Gatewood for most of her life. Ultimately, she was a woman who couldn’t be held back. One of 15 siblings, she was born in 1887 in rural Ohio. At 19, she married and endured 32 years of abuse while raising 11 children. Taking the then uncommon step, she divorced her husband and searched for her next chapter. In 1955, Emma became the first woman to hike the Appalachian Trail solo. This a story of a trail-blazing maverick.
