Appalachian Trail journal
What an absolutely wonderful book! When Mr. Bryson writes, you feel he is talking directly to you. And his use of wit and humor interspersed with his running journal of days on the trail...well, you almost want to get out the hiking boots and tent and start a walk in the woods!

A fun read. This and "In a Sunburned Country" are among the better Bryson titles.

Brysons Walk in the woods
Have Just started reading this book, so I can not rate it, fairly. I can only rate what I've read so far, and it is true "Bryson." If you like Bryson's wit and style, this book will not disappoint you.
