Reviews

"Bryson is a very funny writer who could wring humor from a clammy sleeping bag." -The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Short of doing it yourself, the best way of escaping into nature is to read a book like A Walk in the Woods."-The New York Times

"A terribly misguided, and terribly funny tale of adventure.... The yarn is choke-on-your-coffee funny." -The Washington Post

"Bill Bryson could write an essay about dryer lint or fever reducers and still make us laugh out loud." -Chicago Sun-Times

"Delightful." -The Plain Dealer

"It's great adventure, on a human scale, with survivable discomforts, and, happily, everybody goes home afterwards." -Times Picayune
