From Library Journal:

This beautiful and informative book, replete with majestic photography, discusses the eight trails designated by the U.S. federal government to be protected and maintained by legislation going back to the National Trails System Act of 1968. These national trails which include the Appalachian, Continental Divide, Florida, Ice Age, Natchez Trace, North Country, Pacific Crest, and Potomac Heritage reach coast to coast and north to south, covering thousands of miles of American wilderness, from swamps to glaciers and meadows to mountaintops. Cordes, who is the executive director of the American Association for Leisure and Recreation and who has authored other wilderness travel books (America's National Historic Trails), writes about the history, geography, geology, flora and fauna, and points of interest along each of the trails and discusses opportunities for adventurous activities other than hiking, such as cross-country skiing, kayaking and canoeing, biking, horseback riding, and mushing. She also includes vital addresses for obtaining further information on each trail, an appendix that contains sections with public lands and state lands information, and a comprehensive bibliography and index. An excellent addition to adventure-oriented travel collections. Melinda Stivers Leach, Precision Editorial Svcs., Wondervu, CO
