This was a very interesting book. I hadn't read anything by Bill Bryson until this book. Bryson write about his travels. He has a very consistent writing style thrown in with some humor. There's also a lot of history mixed in….at least in this book.
This was all about his journey on the Appalachian Trail. So there was a lot of history about the trail itself, the mountains, the animals, and hikers on the trail. It was kind of like reading a history book, but MUCH more enjoyable! 🙂
I have a couple more of his books on hand to read and I am looking forward to them. I have a feeling that they will be equally enjoyable.
If you are looking for something that is laid back, but might also teach you a little something, I would definitely recommend reading this book!
