Also he is a through researcher and gives you a different angel of looking at things, I can buy all sorts of travel books that keeps praising a destination and telling you how great it is, but I think Bill is not trying to convince you to go somewhere, he says it as it is
Having hiked on and near Appalachian Trail myself in North Carolina, Shenandoah National Park, and Berkshires in Massachusetts, I could relate to the ordeal of our two adventurers. Being a day or section hiker, I am not able to comprehend the amount of courage and determination it takes for 'through hikers' for being that. So I can rise up on my feet and salute Bill Bryson and all those 'through hikers' any time.
This book will make you laugh and will make you weep at least in your heart. It was published in mid-90s, but is still useful and an excellent read.
