A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail


Show Synopsis

"Back in America after twenty years in Britain, Bill Bryson decided to reacquaint himself with his native country by walking the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine. The AT offers an astonishing landscape of silent forests and sparkling lakes--and to a writer with the comic [sensibilities] of Bill Bryson, it also provides endless opportunities to witness the majestic silliness of his fellow human beings"--Amazon.com.

Ace read.

Needed a break from Vasily Grossman's book, 'Life and Fate'. Got
A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail
by Bill Bryson. Great read. Highly recommended.

Appalachian Trail journal

What an absolutely wonderful book! When Mr. Bryson writes, you feel he is talking directly to you. And his use of wit and humor interspersed with his running journal of days on the trail...well, you almost want to get out the hiking boots and tent and start a walk in the woods!

Better Bryson

A fun read. This and "In a Sunburned Country" are among the better Bryson titles.

Brysons Walk in the woods

Have Just started reading this book, so I can not rate it, fairly. I can only rate what I've read so far, and it is true "Bryson." If you like Bryson's wit and style, this book will not disappoint you.
