This was a great read! I am basically a fiction reader, but this book got me from the first page. The author really makes hiking the Appalachian Trail sound very interesting...lots of facts, humor (and opinions) about the trail, the locales and the people you meet along the way.

Bill Bryson is a wonderful story teller. The book is about his adventure hiking the Appalachian Trail, the people he meets along the way, facts, figures and history about the forests, the trail, and spots along the way. Just as several of his other travel books, this one is filled with wit, wisdom and a story like few are able to tell.

I liked this book because it gave me a sense of taking a walk in the woods, and to a place I had never been before--the Appalachian Trail. It was not just a book about someone's experiences but was also quite humorous. It was a very fun book to read. I am confident that anything this writer expresses will be entertaining.

I never thought a book about hiking would make me laugh, but it did. It was my first Bryson book and now I want to read more of his works.

This is one of my favorite books of all time. I love books about hiking. This is about 2 fat boys setting out to hike the AT. Bill's partner starts throwing stuff out of his backpack within the first day or so. Funny and interesting. Led me to read most of Bill's books, but I like this one the best.

Bryson manages to mix dry fact with a degree of humor in such an easy to read style that one simply has to keep going back for more.
