    The Times
  • "Short of doing it yourself, the best way of escaping into nature is to read a book like A Walk in the Woods... Mr Bryson has met this challenge with zest and considerable humor... a funny book, full of dry humor... the reader is rarely anything but exhilarated"

    The New York Times
  • "Entertaining and often illuminating"

    Paul Johnson, Sunday Telegraph
