A Walk in the Woods Synopsis

Ahead lay almost 2,200 miles of remote mountain wilderness filled with bears, moose, bobcats, rattlesnakes, poisonous plants, disease-bearing tics, the occasional chuckling murderer and - perhaps most alarming of all - people whose favourite pastime is discussing the relative merits of the external-frame backpack.

'Entertaining and often illuminating' -- Paul Johnson Sunday Telegraph

'Irreverent, wildly funny, crowded with anecdotes and observation' Ideal Home
