Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Cook (The Essential Guide to Hiking in the U.S., LJ 11/1/91) explains not only where to walk (different from hiking) but how to walk. In Part 1, which is short but engagingly written, he covers walking rewards, what to take with you and what to wear, how to be safe, and the joys and benefits of making walking a daily part of life. In Part 2, Cook devotes a chapter to each of the 50 states, providing a map, ten recommended areas for easy to moderate walks (usually found in state parks, wildlife refuges, and state or national forests), and addresses for other suitable nature walk areas. Cook's descriptions are brief but include the address (an especially useful aspect of this book); a general comment on the flora, fauna, notable features, and/or terrain; and a listing of the recommended trails. Suitable for public libraries and those in need of natural sites directories.-Nancy J. Moeckel, Miami Univ. Lib., Oxford, Ohio
