Review:

In his new book, Hiking Nevada s County High Points, (published by Spotted Dog Press, April 2010), Central Nevada resident and author, Bob Sumner, has put his life-long love of the desert into this historic adventure guidebook. Sumner shares his favorite scenic hikes to the highest mountain summits in each of Nevada s 16 counties -- Clark, Douglas, Elko, Esmeralda, Eureka, Humboldt, Lander, Lincoln, Lyon, Mineral, Nye, Pershing, Storey, Washoe, White Pine -- and the state capital, Carson City.

Many readers will recognize the familiar summits of Charleston Peak near Las Vegas and Mount Rose above Reno, however Hiking Nevada s County High Points goes far beyond the known. Into the most remote depths of Nevada s rural counties, Sumner s routes cross the Great Basin where mountain ranges seem to float like earthen islands above the desert valleys, to the beautiful world of Nevada s wilderness, remote and seldom visited, the big sky country of sagebrush and pine.

Hiking Nevada s County High Points trails meander through bristlecone pines, the oldest trees on the planet, to the summits Boundary Peak, Nevada s highest and Wheeler Peak in Great Basin National Park to the historic overlook of Mount Davidson above Virginia City; along alpine lakes and cliffs to Ruby Dome; past herds of pronghorn antelope to Mount Jefferson in Nye County; around the old Pony Express trail in the pursuit of Desatoya, Churchill County s high point.

Hiking Nevada s County High Points is a comprehensive driving and hiking guide to the summits of Nevada s 16 counties and Carson City. Author Sumner describes each backcountry adventure in abundant detail with chapters that include:
Driving and route instructions
Camping and lodging locations
A bonus peak which can be combined with the county high point
A side trip to a nearby point of interest
Historic background for each high point
Outdoor enthusiasts from all over the country will appreciate the journeys contained in this must have guide to the state s diverse and challenging high points. Alpinesque scenery, towering limber pines, lush riparian canyons, past wind-sculpted rock walls with hundred mile vistas are here for the exploring in Hiking Nevada s County High Points. --Publisher
