Not long after I moved with my family to a small town in New Hampshire, I happened upon a path that vanished into a wood on the edge of town. So begins Bill Brysons hilarious book, IA Walk in the WoodsI. Following his return to America after 20 years in Britain, Bryson decided to reacquaint himself with his native country by walking the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mount Katahdin in Maine. The AT, as its affectionately known to thousands of hikers, offers an astonishing landscape of silent forests and sparkling lakes - and to a writer with the comic genius of Bill Bryson, it also provides endless opportunities to test his own powers of ineptitude, and to witness the majestic silliness of his fellow human beings. But IA Walk in the WoodsI is more than just a laugh-out-loud hike. Brysons acute eye is a wise witness to this fragile and beautiful trail, and as he tells its fascinating history, he makes a moving plea for the conservation of Americas last great wilderness. An adventure, a comedy, a lament, and a celebration, IA Walk in the WoodsI is destined to become a modern classic of travel literature.
