Product Details

Praise

“Bryson is . . . great company right from the start—a lumbering, droll, neatnik intellectual who comes off as equal parts Garrison Keillor, Michael Kinsley, and . . . Dave Barry…[Readers] may find themselves turning the pages with increasing amusement and anticipation as they discover that they’re in the hands of a satirist of the first rank who writes (and walks) with Chaucerian brio.”
—The New York Times Book Review

“A terribly misguided and terribly funny tale of adventure…choke-on-your-coffee funny.”
The Washington Post Book World

A Walk in the Woods is an almost perfect travel book.”
—The Boston Globe

“The Appalachian Trail…consists of some five million steps, and Bryson manages to coax a laugh, and often an unexpectedly startling insight, out of every one he traverses…It is hard not to grin idiotically through all 304 pages…sheer comic entertainment.”
—Kirkus Reviews
