A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail, by Bill Bryson.
Hardcover in Dust Jacket. Overall Good/Very Good condition with small bit of damage to top of dust jacket.
This book is a favorite of Barrow Bookstore's staff. Laugh out loud funny in some places, Bryson's "Walk In the Woods" will speak to anyone who, ready or most-certainly-not, gave something a try.
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 entertaing 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).
