My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Not your ordinary stroll. I have been taken on a journey that I can visualize. Although I live in the mountains, albeit on a different coast, Bill Bryson has transported me to a wilderness that transcends the fire trail beyond our house. Only once have I undertaken a multi-day trek into the wilds. This was some years ago in the Olympic Peninsula where I was awakened one night in my sleeping bag on the ground, sans tent, with a bear three feet away. But this journey is more than an arduous trek through our spectacular world. It has taken me into the bonds that develop among people who accompany us on our adventures in life. It is physical metaphor for the journey we are all taking Walk on!
