Appalachian Adventure: From Georgia to Maine: A Spectacular Journey on the Great American Trail

" read several of the individual newspaper articles originally written by these journalists and was hooked on the story. When I bought the book I was not disappointed. The photography is marvelous and I love the anthology of the different writers. Each journalist and photographer brought their own perspective and ""eye"" to the project. I definitely recommend this one, but not necessarily as a preparation to hike the AT. It does a better job convincing you that you want to make the hike.

Bryson does it again. First, the hilarious ""The Lost Continent"" and now this. Both books cater to those of us with wanderlust. This guy is great and funny. The Katz character cracked me up, especially the whole deal with Mary Ellen. I busted a gut - and wanted to take off on the trail at the same time (I hike a lot). Required reading for anyone I (anyway) know."
