With a waterfall "hunting" trip to Tennessee looming, I purchased this book for specific information on which waterfalls to see, how to get to each one, and details of the hikes. I found the details of the more involved hikes to be a little lacking. Of course, when you are taking an eight-mile hike, you would like as much detail as possible--especially when you aren't from that area. Since we haven't gone on the trip yet, I can't vouch for the accuracy. The pictures in the book are good. They make you want to go there.
