Summary
Stretching from Georgia to Maine, the Appalachian Trail offers some of America's most breathtaking scenery. It also offers an irresistible, amusingly ill-conceived adventure to Bryson & his out-of-shape walking companion, Stephen Katz. Mile by arduous mile, these unlikely pioneers walk the Appalachian Trail, along the way surviving the threat of bear attacks, cravings for hot showers & cream sodas, the loss of key provisions, & everything else this rugged territory can throw at them. But Bryson's account also vividly conjures a backdrop of silent forests & sparkling lakes - America's astonishing but fragile landscape. Both a hilarious comedy & a tribute to one of our country's last great wildernesses, A Walk in the Woods is a modern classic of travel literature
