Summary
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 entertaining 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).

Well done! It’s stories within a story and many “side stories” to amuse you or teach you a little sumptin!

Funny, motivating, history, all-in-one. I suggest this book to anyone who likes the outdoors, adventure or just a humorous read to switch up your norm.

My favorite book of all time. I must have read it over 10 times now. I pick up new things in it in each read, and it never fails to put a smile on my face.

I was tickled first, then educated, and tickled again. A winsome read, but thoroughly researched.

I listened to this book on a road trip. It was continuously entertaining for two adults and a ten year old.

There were portions of this book that I found informational, some funny, much however very self-indulgent. I don't believe this book did justice to the beauty of the AT nor the potential of appreciation of what hiking experiences in nature are truly about. There was no growth shown in either of the 'characters' which dominated the book. The author should let someone else read his books as well; his voice is irritating. I recommend listening to a portion before purchasing.
