'Short of doing it yourself, the best way of escaping into nature is to read a book like A Walk in the Woods ... Mr Bryson has met this challenge with zest and considerable humor ... a funny book, full of dry humor ... the reader is rarely anything but exhilarated.'
The New York Times

'This is a seriously funny book.'
The Sunday Times

Reluctant adventurer Bryson recounts his gruelling hike along the longest continuous footpath in the world....

In the company of his friend Stephen Katz (last seen in the bestselling Neither Here nor There), Bill Bryson set off to hike the Appalachian Trail, the longest continuous footpath in the world. Ahead lay almost 2,200 miles of remote mountain wilderness filled with bears, moose, bobcats, rattlesnakes, poisonous plants, disease-bearing tics, the occasional chuckling murderer and - perhaps most alarming of all - people whose favourite pastime is discussing the relative merits of the external-frame backpack. Facing savage weather, merciless insects, unreliable maps and a fickle companion whose profoundest wish was to go to a motel and watch The X-Files, Bryson gamely struggled through the wilderness to achieve a lifetime's ambition - not to die outdoors.

'Entertaining and often illuminating.'
The Sunday Telegraph
