A Walk in the Woods, by Bill Bryson
Instead of retiring and enjoying the family, Bill Bryson challenges himself to hike the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine, accompanied by the only person he can find willing to join him on the trek – Katz, an old friend.
What happens next is what you get when you push yourself to the edge, reconnect to the nature and take yourself less seriously: that’s when the fun begins.
Bill Bryson owns the rare and unique capacity to enchant people of any age with his humorous, brilliant style. This book is about being courageous, curious and crazy enough to go out, jump over the back fence and see what’s there.
It’s about freedom, the purest joy the human being can experience.
This is Bryson. How would you like to join me for a little stroll? It’s a chance to grab some fresh air, while there’s still some left.
Robert Redford as Bill Bryson
With a superlative cast made of Robert Redford, Emma Thompson and Nick Nolte, the movie is worth seeing. Funny and entertaining, perfect for a cozy week end at home.
