Very useful book that fills a niche
There are numerous books about Minnesota's North Shore, but this new book manages to offer something not previously available. It concentrates exclusively on the waterfalls along the Minnesota North Shore, and I don't think there has been such a book before with this kind of information all in one place. Most importantly it includes literally every falls there is including many you won't read about elsewhere. Good directions and trail comments are included - I know we would have had found more difficulty finding some falls without it. The Wallingas are also good writers: the book is very well written and entertaining and avoids the usual dry commentary of many guide books. Of course, my list of favorite falls might be slightly different, and there are a few places where the authors said it was too difficult to go where we found that to be not the case. (e.g., it was not hard at all to get to the edge of the Devil's Kettle!) And we managed to access all but one of the Split Rock falls. All in all highly recommended. Even if you have a lot of North Shore guides, if you love waterfalls this book is a must.

A MUST for North Shore waterfall lovers!
This book is an absolute MUST for anyone who appreciates the beautiful waterfalls of the north shore! The directions to the falls are easy to follow and the descriptions of the hikes are fairly accurate. While some of the pictures may be slightly misleading (due to changing water levels over the season, most likely), there are a number of hidden gems for all to find!Was this review helpful?
