Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0805041117, Paperback)

The U.S. is a walking wonderland, if you know where to go. Charles Cook does know and is generously willing to share the goods, with 2,500 of the finest trails in over 500 areas throughout the United States. Nonstrenuous walks in nature, unadulterated by screeching buses, hot tar, and exhaust fumes, are laid out state by state in an easy-to-use format. For each, Cook tells the sort of geography, fauna, and flora to expect, what trails are there, how long they are, and how difficult, plus how to get there. Cook also provides the basics, with advice on what to carry and wear, ecomindedness, and how to walk comfortably and safely. From bitterbrush and chokecherry in Idaho's Caribou National Forest to hickory and waterfalls in Arkansas's Ouachita National Forest, there's a beautiful, quiet, serene world out there just waiting for a good walk. --Stephanie Gold
