Book title: A Walk in the Woods
Author: Bill Bryson
Publisher: Black Swan
Bill Bryson is recognised by many as the foremost travel writer in today's market...Over the past few months I have been reading his work as a break from reading shall we say more serious stuff.
This book entails Bill Bryson and a friend deciding to take to the woods and walk the World's longest recreational footpath.
The Appalachian Trail stretches along the East Coast of the United States, from Georgia to Maine. The Appalachian Trail is almost 2,200 miles in length and includes both mountain terrain ...rivers ...valleys and any number of wild animals including Black and Brown bears.
This book is a wonderful tale of boyish derring do. Written with great humour this book took me back to my childhood days reminding me of the sheer joy and freedom of outdoor life.
A great travel story written with detail and charm.
