A Walk in the Woods
Published 1998 by Black Swan (first published 1997)
I’ve just re-read this and found it to be even more wonderful the second time round.
At times genuinely, laugh-out-loud funny – funny in a way that makes you snort with laughter on public transport. It’s packed with background data and interesting anecdotes from the author’s own readings about the Appalachian Trail. At heart though this is the tale of two guys on a really, really long walk.
