    Hiking Missouri

    I was very impressed with the author¿s first issue of ¿Hiking Missouri.¿ The observations he made, based on his natural history background, easily oriented the hiker to what was special about the area, why it was special, and where to find it. His book on 102 hikes spread throughout Missouri had surpassed all previous publications by other authors for quality and detail until now. With this new edition, the author not only added 25 more interesting hikes, he also updated the hikes from his original book. This extra effort is extremely important because there is nothing more frustrating than using an outdated book where the information may not be as reliable due to trail changes or closures.<BR/><BR/>My only nit about the book, and it is a small one, is that I wish the publisher had put the state map, with all the trail locations, ahead of the trail chart for a little easier orientation.<BR/><BR/>The author has put a lot of time and effort in producing this definitive hiking guide to the state of Missouri. For those that want to have a quality outdoor experience, this book is a must.
