I just finished Bill Bryson's "A Walk in the Woods." I'm sure many of you have read it or heard of it. It is an account of Mr. Bryson's time spent hiking the Appalachian Trail. It is an easy and funny read. Most importantly, he takes the reader along with him. By the end of the book, I felt I was right there, feeling the same bitter sweet thoughts that the satisfyingly difficult journey was over.
I also was reminded of the simple truth that time spent in the outdoors brings appreciation for the outdoors.
If you are looking for a good book this summer or would like to learn a little more about the Appalachian Trail and haven't read Bryson's book, I highly recommend you do. You won't be sorry.
