Definitely the best Idaho hiking guide available! The authors have spent more time in the Idaho wilderness than most of us spend in our homes, and the insights they offer regarding environmental history, and current and future impacts in each section of the book (and many of the hikes) is terrific. My tent mate and I look forward to covering as many hikes/miles as possible using this book as our guide.

What a great book. It is rare that you can sit down and read a hiking book at home like a novel. I use this all summer and read it all winter. The hikes are accurate, the descriptions extraordinary. The Maughans also explain to the reader/hiker how such things as cattle grazing impact lands and watersheds near the hikes. A must read.
