Overview

The tiny, pocket guide covers every corner of the state and uncovers some gems, from trails through the natural beauty of Big Bend and numerous state parks to the man-made copy of Stonehenge in Hunt, near the town of Ingram. If you end up in an unfamiliar corner of Texas, whip out the book and you ll find a pleasant walk nearby. The length and degree of difficulty, or ease, are clearly marked for all routes that Kimball himself has traversed with his wife Madonna or hiking buddy, George Colvin. All three provided photos. Designed to fit in a glove compartment, purse or a back pocket, Texas 107 Best Walks is the perfect, Mother s Day, Father s Day, birthday or anytime gift for that person who loves to explore at their own speed, or who should.

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.
