A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte.

The Appalachian Trail trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America–majestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If you’re going to take a hike, it’s probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaining guide you’ll find. He introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy (or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way–and a couple of bears. Already a classic, A Walk in the Woods will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).

Frommer's EasyGuide to New York City 2017 (Easy Guides)
Pauline Frommer's highly-personal guide to her own home city has, in previous editions, twice been named "Best Guidebook of the Year" by the North American Travel Journalists Association. It has been the best-selling guide to the city for the last three years.

Like all Easy Guides, this annually-researched and popular best-seller is "Quick to Read, Light to Carry"—and colorfully written.

Fully updated yearly, and printed in large, easy-to-read type, the book contains:

- Handy pull-out map and bulleted maps throughout
- Self-guided walking tours
- Exact prices and subway directions for every listing in the book, so there are never any nasty surprises
- Opinionated advice on what to see and what to skip
- Insightful discussions of New York’s history and culture
-16-page photo guide with vibrant photographs, at the front of the book plus black and white photos throughout

Our typography creates character and reveals the true bones of the vertical city. VanDam uses a letter grid to identify locations on maps - no confusing and cluttering K-28 or V-34s - its just the city from A-Z. Our covers map the icons of each city and turn them into collectible graphic art. Each sleek and laminated city map package opens to 24" x 9" and then easily folds down to 4" x 9" to snuggly fit into a shirt pocket or purse. Gain instant NYC STREETSMARTS and a sexy souvenir to boot!
