A Walk in the Woods

by Bill Bryson

Open iTunes to Buy


"Not long after I moved with my family to a small town in New Hampshire, I happened upon a path that vanished into a wood on the edge of town." So begins Bill Bryson's hilarious book, A Walk in the Woods. Following his return to America after 20 years in Britain, Bryson decided to reacquaint himself with his native country by walking the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mount Katahdin in Maine. The AT, as it's affectionately known to thousands of hikers, offers an astonishing landscape of silent forests and sparkling lakes - and to a writer with the comic genius of Bill Bryson, it also provides endless opportunities to test his own powers of ineptitude, and to witness the majestic silliness of his fellow human beings. But A Walk in the Woods is more than just a laugh-out-loud hike. Bryson's acute eye is a wise witness to this fragile and beautiful trail, and as he tells its fascinating history, he makes a moving plea for the conservation of America's last great wilderness. An adventure, a comedy, a lament, and a celebration, A Walk in the Woods is destined to become a modern classic of travel literature.

Customer Reviews

This is an ABRIDGEMENT!!!!

*********Althogh the listing does not say it, it is an ABRIDGEMENT!***** It's not the whole story, many of the more funny parts have been cut out so if you're a fan of Bryson books be careful, you will not be happy with the parts cut out. Needless to say I am not happy about the false description and waste of $16!!

A Walk In The Woods

This is a great buy. It is not word for word as the book but close enough and great to listen to while doing other things. Bill has a great sense of humor and inspiring to walk the AT as well. Made me start hiking again after 15 years of being lazy.Well worth the money!!


When i bought this it did NOT say abridged although i see now it does. It's missing one of the best stories from the book, Katz's near hook-up with an obese woman and being chased by her husband. it's still a great book and worth hearing bill read it. you could spend the money on WAY worse stuff
