Don't use it as a trail guide! Aronlds "trails" are not for everyone (anyone else?) - but it IS a fun adventure read. It might help to have some knowledge of the land but if not, imagine yourself as the author trying to transcend the region.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

If you do know something of the Eastern Sierra you understand the hardship faced here. The land is beyond unforgiving. Everything is at an extreme from elevations to depth of sand to right angle cuts of rock to climate changes. The idea of trying yourself against such a place must come with the knowledge that it isn't going to suffer fools lightly.
Arnold conveys this. It's a good adventure read, for those who have been in some of these places, it's a harrowing return.
