Bryson's New Book (not about AT this time)

In the Baltimore (MD) Sun of 11 February 2007, Susan Reimer writes a book review of Bill Bryson's latest: "Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid: A Memoir."

She writes that "Bill Bryson, a humorist and travel writer who has taken us on amusing journeys along the Appalachian Trail and across time and the cosmos, has turned his wit and his memory to growing up in the middle of the country, in the middle of the century, in the middle of a delightfully dysfunctional family."

Some AT hikers may be surprised that Bryson has had a big writing career both before and after his "A Walk in the Woods." I find him pretty entertaining.
