Editorial Reviews

"Everything one needs to know (but was afraid to ask) about Death Valley is included in this book: history, culture, geology, flora, fauna, and climate are more than adequately explained; visitor uses such as bicycling, hiking, backpacking, exploration, recreation, and educational needs are identified; and trip routes and road logs are included in minute detail for the reader. This excellent book is for the traveler to Death Valley, the frequent visitor to national parks, and the general reader interested in the rich and diverse heritage of the United States." —Colonial Latin American Historical Review "The Explorer's Guide to Death Valley National Park is the first complete guide to cover the entire park region, from the habitats and lifestyles of wildlife in the area to backpacking trips, short day walks and full-length hikes. From warnings of dangers to local attractions, this covers much ground." —Midwest Book Review   "This is a very complete, useful, and well-organized guidebook for the park visitor. This book is highly recommended." —American Reference Books Annual
