A Walk in the Woods

A Walk in the Woods Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Appalachian Trail trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America-majestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If you're going to take a hike, it's probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaing guide you'll find. He introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy (or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way-and a couple of bears. Already a classic, A Walk in the Woods will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).

Synopsis:

From the author of "Notes from a Small Island" and "The Lost Continent" comes this humorous report on his walk along the Appalachian Trail. The Trail is the longest continuous footpath in the world, and it snakes through some of the wildest and most spectacular landscapes in America.

Synopsis:

Bill Bryson's account of his epic walk along the Appalachian Trail, the world's longest continuous footpath. Full of his usual humour and gift for observation, "A Walk In The Woods" sold over 210,000 in hardcover, and follows the success of his previous titles which include "Notes From A Small Island, Neither Here Nor There, The Lost Continent" and "Mother Tongue".
