Another one of our updated blog posts. I really enjoyed “A Walk in the Woods” It’s a great book and I highly recommend it.
I like travel writing in general, but my favorite is a certain kind of book. A book where usually the author travels around and makes comments about whatever they run into, sometimes with a companion. Usually there is some overarching theme that ties it together, like just having broken up with your wife or looking for traces of the Civil War. Included are interesting historical asides about whatever they come across. Think a short Moby Dick without the symbolism. My favorites are Blue Highways by William Least Heat Moon and Travels with Charlie by John Steinbeck. A Walk in the Woods is just this kind of book.
I hadn’t run into this particular author before, but if this book is any indication I’ll be sure to look for more titles as soon as the pile of books by my bed starts to shrink. 😉 Another reason I like him is…
