The Longest Cave

Brucker, Roger W. and Richard A. Watson
Tells how the connections between various caves in the Mammoth cave area of Kentucky were discovered. Lots of maps, photos, and drawings. Almost too much detail. A holo-map of the area would have been useful! Interesting that Wil Crowther's (Colossal Cave game fame) wife was on the final connection team.

A Walk In The Woods

Bryson, Bill
The author and his friend Steve Katz head out to hike the Appalachian Trail. Humerous and interesting.

QUOTE:

Her name was Donna, and they were on their way to some desperate sounding community--Turkey Balls Falls or Coon Slick or somplace--another fity miles up the road, but they were pleased to drop us in Hiawassee, if they didn't kill us all first.

At Home

Bryson, Bill
Mr. Bryson tells us rather little about his home, which he is ostensibly reporting on, but a great deal about everything else. A very interesting book which caused me to spend many hours looking stuff up.

Mother Tongue

Bryson, Bill
Subtitle "English & How It Got That Way". I particulary like the chapter on swearing. Very interesting, but lots of information, spiced with humour.

Read:

12/1999

Neither Here Nor There

Bryson, Bill
Bill travels Europe complaining about litter and recalling a former journey with the incredible Stephen Katz. Very humorous!

QUOTE:

The photograph on the box was of a delectably attractive brunette in a transparent negligee. Either this was cruelly misleading or they had made more progress with vinyl in recent years then I had realized.

Shakespeare : The World As Stage

Bryson, Bill
If it's Bryson, it's interesting. And it is. Now I know even more (or even less?) since I read Chute's book.
