Transcript of A Walk in the Woods

By Bill Bryson A Walk in the Woods Motif Summary: Theme The woods Symbol By Ally Holmes Bill Bryson recounts his travels with his partner Stephen Katz an old friend who is unexperienced with hiking and very overweight. They hike through sections of the Appalachian Trail. Bryson hopes to create a connection to the wilderness by walking the trail, joining the life of other hikers, and telling the wilderness history of much of the Eastern United States. They experience what it's like to hike through blizzards and other bad weather conditions. They go on this adventure with almost no knowledge for the outdoors. Although the two of them do not hike the 2,100-some miles, they develop a friendship. You shouldn't be afraid to take risks. Bryson has no outdoor experience and has a partner that is overweight. He leaves all civilization, and decides to learn what it's like to have nothing, but the wilderness. Bryson wants to take more risks and take a step out of the world he is used to. The woods represent the peace Bryson feels when disconnecting from the world he is used to. Throughout the story, Bryson repeatedly refers to the peace he feels while being in the wilderness. The point he's trying to get across is that the same old thing gets boring and you should take risks because a lot of the time you will be glad you did. The End! http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/5d/Bill_Bryson_A_Walk_In_The_Woods.jpg
