Historian Jeremy Cobb is backpacking on the Appalachian Trail, attempting to retrace the tragic final journey of Katie Wyler, a young woman kidnapped from the area by the Shawnee in 1789. Cobb doesn't know that Katie's spirit wanders these hills still. Meanwhile, Sheriff Spencer Arrowood is busy tracking an elderly escaped convict known as Harm who - believing the year is still 1967 - roams the mountains in search of a home that is no longer there. Martha Ayers is frustrated that no one takes Harm seriously; that he is seen as something of a folk hero and an embodiment of the free mountain spirit. But when Harm's ex-wife is found murdered, the manhunt is no longer a joking matter. In "She Walks These Hills," McCrumb weaves timeless myth, memorable characters, and unique Appalachian ambience into a powerful novel of suspense.
