In the company of his friend Stephen Katz (last seen in the bestselling Neither Here nor There), Bill Bryson set off to hike the Appalachian Trail, the longest continuous footpath in the world. Ahead lay almost 2,200 miles of remote mountain wilderness filled with bears, moose, bobcats, rattlesnakes, poisonous plants, disease-bearing tics, the occasional chuckling murderer and - perhaps most alarming of all - people whose favourite pastime is discussing the relative merits of the external-frame backpack. Facing savage weather, merciless insects, unreliable maps and a fickle companion whose profoundest wish was to go to a motel and watch The X-Files, Bryson gamely struggled through the wilderness to achieve a lifetime's ambition - not to die outdoors.… (mere)

really funny book. read it while I hiked for a week on the Appalachian Trail with my pops. Captures some very funny stuff that I think anyone who goes out hiking notices. So on the whole great book with some also very cool facts about the trail. Sometimes it seems like the author has a little bit of an ax to grind against certain organizations/topics, but it doesn't really detract from the humor.

Bill Bryson is a good writer and I really got a strong sense of the trails he hiked. There were parts of the book I found funny (like when he's buying his camping equipment) but other parts that I found offensive (like the fat-shaming). And they littered so much! I got a little turned off my how negative Mr. Bryson was towards the parks service and every other organization he mentioned.

So, I found it a mixed bag. In my experience, Mr. Bryson is a writer who has improved with time. I like his new works much more than his earlier ones. ( )

This book started out very strong for me. I loved the author's voice and his subject matter. I read the first half of the book in one sitting, but then upon taking it up again, I faltered. I didn't feel a strong appeal in going back, and I really didn't feel like it was important to finish. There is a bit of a parallel there between my reading and Bryson's hiking, I suppose. It was a good trip down memory lane, recalling my own adventures on the trail. It was interesting to read about some of the history as well. In the end, though, the story just didn't have that spark that kept me asking, "what happens next?" ( )

Amusing, interspersed with the occasional dire fact about the state of American wilderness. It renewed my interest in hiking the Appalachian Trail. ( )

Bill Bryson is probably the best travel writer living today. His books are creating an atmosphere of joy and wanderlust! A Walk in the Woods is a perfect and funny example for that. ( )

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]
