Café Find: Café Henrie NYC

Cafe Henrie is, among other things, a cafe on the Lower East Side. You’ll find coffee, tea, and food that puts a spin on the usual cafe fare (think “avo hash” – whipped avocado, poached egg, and tomato confit on a potato hash waffle – as opposed to the standard avo toast), but to think […]

Restaurant Find: Automata Sydney

(This Automata Sydney story by Jenny Nguyen-Barron first appeared in ForbesLife) The words ‘chic’ and ‘car garage’ have not been familiar friends, until now, thanks to the recent opening of Automata at Sydney’s Old Clare Hotel. The new restaurant, which has opened in the midst of Chippendale’s neighborhood food renaissance marries raw, industrial style with contemporary […]

A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail by Bill Bryson

A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

 

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).

Walk in the Woods on DVD

Bill Bryson has made a living out of traveling and then writing about it. In The Lost Continent he re-created the road trips of his childhood; in Neither Here nor There he retraced the route he followed as a young backpacker traversing Europe. When this American transplant to Britain decided to return home, he made a farewell walking tour of the British countryside and produced Notes from a Small Island. Once back on American soil and safely settled in New Hampshire, Bryson once again hears the siren call of the open road–only this time it’s a trail. The Appalachian Trail, to be exact. In A Walk in the Woods Bill Bryson tackles what is, for him, an entirely new subject: the American wilderness. Accompanied only by his old college buddy Stephen Katz, Bryson starts out one March morning in north Georgia, intending to walk the entire 2,100 miles to trail’s end atop Maine’s Mount Katahdin.

If nothing else, A Walk in the Woods is proof positive that the journey is the destination. As Bryson and Katz haul their out-of-shape, middle-aged butts over hill and dale, the reader is treated to both a very funny personal memoir and a delightful chronicle of the trail, the people who created it, and the places it passes through. Whether you plan to make a trip like this one yourself one day or only care to read about it, A Walk in the Woods is a great way to spend an afternoon. –Alix Wilber
