A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail, by Bill Bryson
Read and reviewed in February, 2009. Released in June.
I finished reading this book this morning. Bill Bryson is a very humorous writer. He can make anything seem funny, even slogging through snow, rain, cold, and heat through the woods on the Appalachian Trail. Along the way, he gives a lot of information about the history of the trail, some important events that happened in the vicinity, particularly events surrounding the American Civil War, and facts concerning the biological diversity and geology of the area.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and will look for more of his work.
