Patriot Ledger - Larry Claflin Jr.
...has information in it that is useful to both sexes.
Deseret Morning News - Lynn Arave
The majority of the popular hiking books are written by men for men. Although Rogovin Frankel isn't the first woman to write a hiking book, she is one fo the few to write from a woman's point of view. Frankel...demonstrates a strong passion for hiking, an excitement that is conveyed in her writing. Perhaps it is this diverse, worldwide hiking experience that also helps make her book stand out from the crowd.
Columbia State - Linda Lamb
Frankel draws on decades of experience to offer ideas for mountain hiking. Frankel's enthusiasm for her subject might make you want to take a hike.
Wisconsin Bookwatch
A very practical hiking guide written especially for women seeking to camp or travel about in a mountain wilderness area. Very highly recommended for female hikers.
Women In The Outdoors
Targeting both the couch potato and the physically fit, Frankel prescribes numerous exercise regiminesbased on an individual's fitness level and recommends treks in the States, Asia and Europe.
