A Walk in the Woods

A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail describes Bill Bryson’s attempt to walk the 2,100 mile long Appalachian Trail with his friend, Stephen Katz.  Along the way, you’ll learn the history of the trail, the challenges the trail faces, and you’ll come away with a taste of an American treasure.  Bill Bryson’s writing is laugh-out-loud funny and, at the same time, astute and introspective.  I thoroughly enjoyed this fascinating book.

    I have heard great things about that book, but it’s another one I’ve never picked up. I didn’t realize it was about walking on the Appalachian Trail, though!

      I love Bill Bryson, even though this is the only book of his that I’ve read. I’m very interested in reading At Home: A Short History of Private Life and The Mother Tongue: English and How It Got That Way. Honestly, I think I would enjoy all his books…but these two first.
