Top Rated Western Adventures: Guest Ranches, Pack Trips and Cattle Drives in North America by Maurizio Valerio, Maurizio Valerio
The Western United States is clearly the playground for the active, outdoor travel/adventure crowd. From the mountain streams of Montana to the beaches of sunny California, fly-fishing, riding, paddling, and hunting are the pursuits that draw visitors to the West and keep them coming back. No travel plans to the West should be made without a copy of Top Rated Western Adventures —the only guide to the West that evaluates all the guides, outfitters, lodges, and resorts on the basis of their previous clients' reviews. Each entry provides the kind of detail that will allow for planning a family outing, wild adventure to the edge, or simply a more activity-filled break from the office routine. Photos bring the venues to life and maps provide a way of planning activities amidst general travel plans. Make sure you have the adventure of your lifetime.
