Entertaining and educational written in a style that keeps your attention. The authors humorous attempt to hike the Appalachian trail mingled with the history, biology, geography, geology of the trail and surrounding areas. I would recommend this book to anyone.

Leuk boek over een poging van de auteur om de Appalachian Trail te lopen met een oude vriend van hem. Ze zijn hier uiteraard veel te oud voor, maar proberen het toch, ondanks alle tegenslagen. Zoals gebruiken bij de boeken van Bill Bryson beschrijft hij ook wat natuur historie over de plaatsen/bergen/gebieden waar ze door heen lopen. ( )

This book is so funny! I did not expect that. Part 1 is funnier than part 2. I enjoyed Part 1 more.

Here are two men, hiking the Appalachian Trail, having some good times and some bad times and meeting interesting people along the way. The weather varies from one extreme to the other and it makes all of it an adventure. I ended up relaying some of these stories to my friends and family.

Bill Bryson also talks quite a bit about ecology and the environment. He throws in some history lessons. I did learn quite a bit. I believe I will check out more of Bryson's books.

Bill Bryson doesn't have a driving plot. It really is a Walk in the Woods. But, it's the characters, the journey, the history, and the observations.

Reading Bill is like hanging out with someone that has lived an above average, but a thoroughly delightful adventure. ( )

Bryson's breezy, self-mocking tone may turn off readers who hanker for another ''Into Thin Air'' or ''Seven Years in Tibet.'' Others, however, 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, one who writes (and walks) with Chaucerian brio.
 
[Bryson] was often exhausted, his ''brain like a balloon tethered with string, accompanying but not actually part of the body below.'' The reader, by contrast, is rarely anything but exhilarated. And you don't have to take a step.

Not long after I moved with my family to a small town in New Hampshire I happened upon a path that vanished into a wood on the edge of town.

But always the wandering trail ran on.
“You all right?” I said. “Oh, peachy,” he replied. “Just peachy. I don’t know why they couldn’t have put some crocodiles in here and made a real adventure of it.”
The book to which I refer is Bear Attacks: Their Causes and Avoidance by a Canadian academic named Stephen Herrero. If this is not the last word on the subject, the I really, really, really do not wish to hear the last word. [Chapter 2]
Black bears rarely attack. But here's the thing. Sometimes they do. All bears are agile, cunning, and immensely strong, and they are always hungry. If they want to kill you and eat you, they can, and pretty much whenever they want. That doesn't happen often, but -- and here is the absolutely salient point -- once would be enough. [Chapter 2]
I wanted very much to be calmed by these assurances but could never quite manage the necessary leap of faith. After noting that just 500 people were attacked and hurt by black bears between 1960 and 1980 -- twenty-five attacks from a resident population of at least half a million bears -- Herrero adds that most of these injuries were not severe. "The typical black bear-inflicted injury," he writes blandly, "is minor and usually involves only a few scratches or light bites." Pardon me, but what exactly is a light bite? Are we talking a playful wrestle and gummy nips? I think not. And is 500 certified attacks really such a modest number, considering how few people go into the North American woods? And how foolish must one be to be reassured by the information that no bear has killed a human being in Vermont or New Hampshire in 200 years? That's not because the bears have signed a treaty, you know. There's nothing to say they won't start a modest rampage tomorrow. [Chapter 2]
