A Walk in the Woods – Acrylic and Watercolour in a Watercolour Moleskine

This is inspired by Bill Bryson’s book of the same name where he described hiking the Appalachian Trail. ISBN 0385 408161

I re-read this recently to find out about the threat, by disease or climate change, which is effecting many native American trees. Its worth reading this book if only for Bryson’s humour. My favourite pieces are near the beginning where he starts to get concerned about tales of bear attacks. He then discovers that bears seem to like Snickers. Later, when joined by a friend, Stephen Katz, he is further dismayed to learn that Katz has brought along lots of emergency supplies – Lots of Snickers.
