Walkabout (Anglais) Relié – 1 octobre 2002
Descriptions du produit
Quatrième de couverture
Combined in one block-buster of an omnibus now are Bryson's DOWN UNDER, an account of his memorable walk across Australia, and the irresistibly funny A WALK IN THE WOODS, that tells of his lengthy stroll in the Appalachian mountains of America, with his old friend Stephen Katz.
Bill Bryson traversed the length and breadth of Australia to bring us DOWN UNDER. A household name, synonymous with laugh-out-loud humour, sniggering, and outbursts of chortling, DOWN UNDER is what's commonly known as the perennial classic. In the very same volume is a story of his walk down the longest continuous footpath in the world. The Appalachian Trail stretches along the East Coast of the United States, from Georgia to Maine, through some of the most arresting and celebrated landscapes in America - the Smoky Mountains, Shenandoah National Park, the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts and the Great North Woods of Maine.
Read them both, now, together.

Definitely happy trails! One is Appalacia, one is the Land Down Under, but they are well-paired together!
Bryson gets a little too full of himself in "Down Under" (Waltzing Matilda rewrites, salmon cartoon, running away from dogs etc.), but he does retain many interesting historical anecdotes, and the travel itself is well described and easy to read. I don't often read travel books, though I used to somewhat enjoy Palin's travelogues. I'd call his books here a step above those travelogues, and well written enough to be worthy of a place on the bookshelf.
