Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-These titles describe what it is like to hike two of America's great pathways. Each book begins with a short history of the trail and an explanation of the formation of the landscape through which it runs. Andryszewski then leads readers on a state-by-state (south to north) tour, describing the terrains, elevations, landmarks, and sites that hikers (or equestrians out West) would encounter on their journey. Pacific Crest Trail includes an additional section addressing the diverse weather conditions and their effect on the dozens of ecosystems along the route. Highlighted sidebars, scattered throughout both texts, contain quotes from hikers, historical information, and safety advice concerning the climate and wildlife. Clear, full-color photographs give readers a sense of "you are there" immediacy. Students using these books for reports are sure to get wrapped up in the vivid descriptions, while nature lovers and budding adventurers will want to pack up and start walking. Presenting new information for this audience, these offerings are solid additions to any collection.-Michele Snyder, Chappaqua Public Library, NY
