    Bill Bryson's bestselling books include A Walk in the Woods, Neither Here Nor There,In a Sunburned Country, Bryson's Dictionary of Troublesome Words, andA Short History of Nearly Everything, the latter of which earned him the 2004 Aventis Prize. Bryson lives in England with his wife and children.

    Soon to be a major motion picture starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte.

    The Appalachian Trail trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America–majestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If you’re going to take a hike, it’s probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaining guide you’ll find. He introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy (or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way–and a couple of bears. Already a classic,A Walk in the Woods will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).
