Peace Pilgrim
FameRank: 6

"Peace Pilgrim" born "Mildred Lisette Norman", was an American non-denominational spiritual teacher, Mysticism/mystic, pacifism/pacifist, vegetarian activist and peace activist. In 1952, she became the first woman to walk the entire length of the Appalachian Trail in one season. She also walked across the United States at least eight times, and likely more than 20 times.

Starting on January 1, 1953, in Pasadena, California/Pasadena, California, she adopted the name "Peace Pilgrim" and walked across the United States for 28 years.

A transcript of a 1964 conversation with Peace Pilgrim from a broadcast on KPFK radio in Los Angeles, California/Los Angeles, California, was published as "s:Steps Toward Inner Peace/Steps Toward Inner Peace". She stopped counting miles in that year, having walked more than for peace.
