Editorial Reviews

Dan Stephens
Allan makes the walks desirable through his personal narrative style. To be included, a walk had to be interesting and not too long (most are less than three miles). A bonus: the 75-page publication is pocket-sized, so it can be carried along on your walk. Information about each walk, including the general area, name of the walk or trail, length and level of difficulty are provided. Allan also supplies driving directions, phone numbers, and helpful web sites. 'Texas 107 Best Walks' is organized according to region, featuring 24 walks in the Hill Country alone. "These walks range from rugged parks to delightful strolls in urban areas, including zoos, museums, even a large mall. Read this book before going, and you ll take more informed walks. 'Texas 107 Best Walks' is delightful, as are all of Allan s travel books.

The Great Texas Line publishes useful and entertaining small books, 4½ inches by 5½ inches, reasonably priced ...
