2014 is the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act. To celebrate this notable act we will be discussing...

A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson

Stretching from Georgia to Maine, the Appalachian Trail offers some of America's most breathtaking scenery. After living abroad for many years, Bill Bryson moved back to the U S and decided to reacquaint himself with his country by taking to this uninterrupted "hiker's highway." Before long, Bryson and his infamous walking companion, Stephen Katz, are preparing to set off on a walk that is both amusingly ill-conceived and surprisingly adventurous. Fresh, illuminating, and uproariously funny, A Walk in the Woods is travel writing at its very best.
