A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

by Bill Bryson

The Appalachian 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). [From Goodreads.com webpage]

This book is available at the State Library, EZBorrow, and many local public libraries in a variety of formats.

Please come and share your thoughts with others who like to read. Bring your own lunch and join us. Anyone is welcome.
