A Walk in the Woods

Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail (1998)
A Walk in the Woods

The Appalachian Trail runs over 2,000 miles, through 14 states, from Georgia to Maine, and Bill Bryson decided to walk it.  Fans of Bryson’s other travel books (In a Sunburned Country, Neither Here Nor There, and more) know that they will get a very personal account of his travels, with comments that are, at times, trivial, bizarre, amazed, grumpy, and very, very funny.  A Walk in the Woods ranks as one of Bryson’s best, a real delight.
