- Publish Date: 2006-12-26

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte.
The Appalachian Trail trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in Americaâmajestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If youâre going to take a hike, itâs probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaining guide youâll 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 wayâand 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).
