A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson

A Walk in the Woods

The Appalachian Trail strethes from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in American. Renowned author Bill Bryson writes about his ambituous journey hiking the trail with his long time friend. Neither Bill nor his hiking companian are experienced outdoorsman or hikers, however. Now a major motion picture, A Walk in the Woods highlights the natural pleasures, human eccentrics, and offbeat comforts of the Appalachian Trail.
