Editorial Reviews

Austin Chronicle
For first time visitors to Big Bend, Kimball's guide is as important as bringing along enough water.
Austin American-Statesman
One of the best I've seen. The book is written with a touch of humor and an obvious love for Big Bend.
Texas Highways magazine
Whether spending two days or 10, Kimball provides the skinny on what to do, what to see, and how to get there.
Mike Cox
While diminutive, Kimball's book contains plenty of useful information for anyone planning a visit to the 800,000-plus-acre Big Bend National Park or any of the beautiful country around it. The literature of the Big Bend is almost as extensive as its rugged desert and mountain terrain, but Kimball's guide is the best small source I've seen.
Lone Star Book Blog, 2009
San Angelo Standard-Times
An inexpensive, compact guide filled with travel tips, hikes, itineraries and other useful information.
Texas Highways Magazine
Whether spending two days or 10, Kimball provides the skinny on what to do, what to see, and how to get there.
