A Walk In the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail, by Bill Bryson is a delight to read. Bill, with his companion Katz, take readers on a hilarious adventure. They set out to (almost) hike the Appalachian Trail – and end up finding a little bit of America along the way. Although the second half of the book is a bit slower than the first, readers should not miss out on this laugh-out-loud adventure.
One of my favorite quotes:
“Rayette was six feet tall and had a face that would frighten a baby, but she seemed good-natured and was diligent with the coffee. She could not have signaled her availability to Katz more clearly if she had thrown her skirt over her head and laid across his Hungary Man Breakfast Platter.”
