Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
One of the most dependable series available, Lonely Planet's guidebooks are packed with essential information and accurate maps and are written with enough character that they are also good reading for armchair travelers. The series is now popular with travelers of all sorts, although backpackers and adventure travelers have long relied on Lonely Planet's guides because of the wide range of destinations offered. Whether you want to relax on the beaches of Thailand, roam the Australian outback, or explore the deserts of Iran, Lonely Planet has a practical, thorough guidebook for your destination. For dangerous or less-traveled regions, we highly recommend Lonely Planet's guides because they provide crucial information in an easy-to-use format, making it possible for travelers to handle the difficulties of language, customs, and transportation. In countries with unfamiliar alphabets, the guides include the names of cities and sights in both English and native characters, and glossaries are provided to help travelers with menus. The series offers lodging and restaurant options for all budgets, but the main focus is on getting a good deal for your money. With good writing, a wealth of valuable information, and beautiful color photo sections, Lonely Planet's guides are hard to beat.
Library Journal
This inaugural title in Lonely Planet's new series on national parks joins a list of over 150 titles currently in print (e.g., George Wuerthner's Yosemite: The Grace & Grandeur) that provide information on Yosemite, which attracts over three million visitors a year. A collaborative effort with Wolff (The Rough Guide to Country Music) serving as the coordinating author, this title achieves the purpose of a general guide, providing all the necessary information a first-time visitor will need. Photographic and narrative highlights are followed by chapters on activities, planning, the four gateways to the park, detailed information on sections of the park with maps, and places to stay and eat inside and outside the park, ending with chapters on history, geology, and ecology. The lack of color in the photos and maps is the only major drawback. Written by experts, this comprehensive guidebook is suitable for all public libraries in California and for other larger public libraries.-John McCormick, New Hampshire State Lib., Concord Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
