Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first of two Bill Bryson titles that have reverted to Transworld following the Doubleday publication of his latest title, "A Walk In The Woods. Made In America" takes a look at American culture and history. "A tremendously sassy work, full of zip, pizzazz and all those other great American qualities" Will Self, "Independent On Sunday".
