Books I've Read: A Walk In The Woods

Whenever I visit a bookstore, I look for interesting stories in the travel section. That is where I found A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail by Bill Bryson.

The author writes humorous, and thoughtful, descriptions of the Appalachian Trail, the people he meets while hiking, and his interactions with a friend who joins him on the trail. He adds commentary on the National Park System and the history of the trail and he does it in an insightful, easy to read style.

I enjoyed the book so much, I've added it to my personal library, and I've put his other books on my reading list.
