Editorial Reviews

Spokane Spokesman-Review
This book is unsurpassed in the region for the ground it covers at a bargain price and the journalistic depth of the research, from the introduction to the index.
Everett Herald
When cabin fever begins to weasel its way into your psyche, pick up Landers' second edition and start planning 'far east' hikes...It's obvious that Landers has done some serious research.
East Oregonian
If you're a hiker headed anywhere within a three-hour driving radius of Spokane, you will welcome [this] extensive updating of 100 Hikes in the Inland Northwest.
Oregonian
In addition to describing the trails, the 334-page book teems with well-chosen black-and-white photos, elevations charts for each hike, and maps that let you visualize the terrain. Unlike the author, few hikers have the time to hike all 100, so this book will help you zero in on the very best.

I can't believe I'm the first to write a review on this book. The 100 hike series by the Mountaineers is the greatest collection of books on hiking in the Pacific NW and this book has the corner on the Spokane, Sandpoint, Coeur de Alene area. Not one hiker I know in this area is not intimately familiar with this book and most use it as their only guide book. My goal? To do every single hike in this book before I die. I've done about 80 or so of these hikes and found the book's description of the trails, the sights, and add on hikes to be second to none. A must have for hiking Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Oregon!
