The Appalachian Trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in Americadash;majestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If you’re going to take a hike, it’s probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaining guide you’ll 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 waydash;and a couple of bears. Already a classic, A Walk in the Woods/em will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).Lexile Measure:/ 1210LCopyright 1998. 4 x 7 inches.
