Staff Pick of the Week: “A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail” by Bill Bryson

Genre: Nature/Travel Writing, Humor

Read-Alikes:

The Oregon Trail: An American Journey by Rinker Buck
World Travel: An Irreverent Guide by Anthony Bourdain



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 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).
