Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Avid hiker and author Judy Bentley beckons you onto historic Washington State paths in this strikingly original approach to the great outdoors. Hiking Washington's History pinpoints forty trails in every region of the state that possess both beauty and some historical resonance. Each route entry contains an overview, trail narratives, historical highlights, and quotes and photographs from representative primary documents. The hikes range from short, brisk walks to three- or four-day backpacking expeditions over mountain passes. Tapping the roots of a historic state.

Sierra Club - The Green Life

Comprehensive and well-researched, Bentley's trail guide breathes life into Washington state's natural landscapes by linking trails to historical events.... Whether you're interested in hiking or history, this read satisfies an urge for either.

The Oregonian

Bentley's is the best kind of guidebook: intelligent, well-researched and easy to use.

The Seattle Times

Hiking Icicle Ridge near Leavenworth, you might wonder who all those women were that so many of the lakes are named after. Along the Cape Flattery Trail… you might wonder how the area's earliest human inhabitants not only managed to eke out a living along the rocky, stormy Pacific coastline, but to actually thrive while doing so. Or on the Yacolt Burn Trail, south of Mount St. Helens, you might find yourself wondering what exactly is it about this area that spurred Skamania County to declare itself the world's first Sasquatch refuge…. if history is your thing, Bentley's book makes an invaluable resource as well as a fun read.

Kitsap Sun

Here is a wonderful book!. Whether you regard Hiking Washington's History as a history book disguised as a hiking guide, or a trail guide with historical anecdote, get yourself a copy of this book and start planning for adventures across the state in 2011!
