Beyond the specifics of location, distance, geographic information, Deborah Wall really sets herself apart in this genre as a personal guide. I was impressed with the amount of detail, the additional safety information pertinent to desert hiking, and the stunning photographs. I often utilize the library for guide resources, but this is one you're going to want to own and have with you. Highly recommended for outdoor enthusiasts of all levels, both living in the area and planning visits.
I received an advanced reader copy (eGalley) from Imbrifex Books through NetGalley. This review reflects my honest and unbiased opinions.
The first part of the book covers preparation and safety. Deborah presents lots of good ideas to consider before making a long hike. There are also great full color photos that feature the highlights of a hike. For each hike, dangerous conditions are noted.
One of my favorite section is the appendix at the rear of the book. Here, there is an index to hikes.
All in all, I was delighted with this book. Great photos with lots of tips. I only wish I lived closer!
