Description
When journalist and travel writer Bill Bryson returned to the United States after 20 years in England, he could think of only one way to reacquaint himself with his native country: hike the Appalachian Trail. This best-selling book is his hilarious record of the dangers, quirky characters, and awe-inspiring scenery he encountered on his trek from Georgia to Maine. Stocking up for his journey at the sporting goods store, Bryson suspects he is getting into a lot more than a simple walk. There he is bewildered by a startling array of equipment, all designed to keep him alive in the great outdoors. Undaunted, he gathers his gear, says good-bye to his family, and sets off with a hiking companion even more unfit than himself. As Bryson travels slowly on foot, he shares his breath-taking adventures and the fascinating history of the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail. With narrator Ron McLarty's superb performance, you can discover the America most people will never experience.
