A Walk in the Woods
By Bill Bryson


Fatphobia, Body shaming, Murder

Alcoholism, Misogyny, Animal death

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).

    I love books, my favorite way to read. I have read books by Bryson, great writer and laughed as I read “Walk in the Woods.”

      He definitely had a unique style of writing. I really enjoyed the “facts” he peppered throughout about the National Park System, the place of modernization and industry in regards to nature, etc.

      We hope to see you at a future book club!
