Emma Gatewood’s life was far from easy. In rural Ohio, she managed a household of 11 kids alongside a less-than-supportive husband. One day, at age 67, she decided to go for a nice long walk…and ended up completing the Appalachian Trail. A story of true grit and girl power at any age, Grandma Gatewood proves that no peak is insurmountable.
