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

 

Synopses & Reviews

About the Author

His books include travel memoirs (Neither Here Nor There, The Lost Continent, Notes from a Small Island), and books on language (The Mother Tongue, Made in America). He now lives in Hanover, New Hampshire, with his wife and four children.
