Six books that will inspire you to lace up your hiking boots

At the B&N Reads blog Monique Alice tagged six books that will inspire you to lace up your hiking boots, including:
A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail, by Bill Bryson

A Walk in the Woods has become a hiking classic in the nearly 20 years since its first publication, and it’s easy to see why. Travel writer Bill Bryson shares his journey to rediscover his home country after living abroad for many years. On his way from Georgia to Maine via the Appalachian Trail, he encounters a whole cast of characters: some funny, some infuriating, and some four-legged. Bryson’s deep love of the forests of the American East is well balanced by his snarky humor and malcontentedness. A Walk in the Woods is sure to snag an honorary place on your bookshelf after hiking season is through.
