Beschreibung des Verlags

In the company of his friend Stephen Katz (last seen in the bestselling Neither Here nor There), Bill Bryson set off to hike the Appalachian Trail, the longest continuous footpath in the world. Ahead lay almost 2,200 miles of remote mountain wilderness filled with bears, moose, bobcats, rattlesnakes, poisonous plants, disease-bearing tics, the occasional chuckling murderer and - perhaps most alarming of all - people whose favourite pastime is discussing the relative merits of the external-frame backpack.

Facing savage weather, merciless insects, unreliable maps and a fickle companion whose profoundest wish was to go to a motel and watch The X-Files, Bryson gamely struggled through the wilderness to achieve a lifetime's ambition - not to die outdoors.

Kundenrezensionen

Phanil96 ,

Easy read

Ein typischer Bryson - witzig, leicht zu lesen on-and-off, und eine gute Mischung aus Erzählung und Fakten. Allerdings ist zu erwähnen dass das Buch ca. ab der Mitte einen recht langweiligen Teil hat und erst am Ende wieder witzig wird, daher nur 4 Sterne.

Forget the second part

This book was really nice and fun until the middle...then it was very boring. Not worth it really
