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

    by Bill Bryson

    Book Description

    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).

    Review of A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail by Bill Bryson
    4.5 out of 5
    Laugh out loud funny!
    This was the first of Bryson's books that I read and it was hilarious! This book made me laugh more than any other book I'd read in a long time. Unfortunately, I tried a few other of Bryson's books after this one and didn't find them quite as enjoyable.
