Editorial Reviews

The Idaho Statesman
"Best Hikes with Kids: Oregon, by The Mountaineers Books should be in your glove box [because this] kid's hiking book could be [a] lifesaver on [a] long Oregon drive."
Herald and News: Klamath Falls
"Henderson does an excellent job of including hikes from around the state" and "the maps and descriptions…[are] easier to read than in other guide books"

"For people with kids planning vacations or long weekends on the Oregon Coast or in the Cascades, 'Best Hikes' has an excellent selection of choices"

The Bulletin: Bend OR
"This could be the most practical book released this spring. At least for parents"
