Book Title: A Walk in the Woods

Author: Bill Bryson

Book Description:

I read this book over the summer of 2003 at the urging of some friends who are outdoor enthusiasts (hikers/climbers/bikers), and it was one of the funniest yet inspiring books I have ever read. I have since read many more of Bill Bryson's travel books. His philosophy of travel is very similar to mine. But A Walk in the Woods was one of the main reasons I started exploring trails in Western PA. Actually it was the reason. Even though I am an avid exerciser, his book opened up a whole new set of possibilities that was literally right under my nose.
