Loved this book. It brought me to some familiar places, but also to many I never knew existed. I like the style of the book and the fact that the author paints a vivid picture of the hike by providing background information on the history of the place and details of the lives of the plants and animals you may see along the way. It's much more than a guidebook; I've found myself just reading it at home and picturing the places he's talking about. Well written, informative, and accurate; what more could you ask of a guidebook?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
