A Walk in the Woods
Rediscovering America on the Appalachian TrailAudiobook CD - 2015
Back in America after twenty years in Britain, Bill Bryson decided to reacquaint himself with his native country by walking the 2, 100 mile Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine. Known affectionately as the AT, it offers an astonishing landscape of silent forests and sparkling lakes. But for Bryson it also offered an opportunity for humor and irony as he learned the trail's hard lessons about self-reliance. He persuaded his friend Stephen Katz to join him for weeks and months on the trail.
