About this title:

Synopsis:

Moon Spotlight California Deserts Camping and Hiking is a 125-page compact guide covering California's famously photographic deserts — including Death Valley, the Mojave, Joshua Tree and Anza-Borrego — perfect for campers or hikers looking for a a back-country campsite or a place to pitch a tent. Each camp listing has at-a-glance icons that indicate nearby hiking or biking trails, swimming, fishing, boating, canoeing, kayaking and hot springs. You'll also learn what campsites and trails allow dogs. Hiking descriptions include distance, estimated hiking time, and a rating for difficulty. Easy-to-follow maps and clear driving directions lead campers and hikers to the best of California's deserts.

This Spotlight guidebook is excerpted from Moon California Camping and Moon California Hiking.

About the Author: For 30 years, Tom Stienstra?s full-time job has been to capture and communicate the outdoor experience. This has led him across California—hiking, boating, fishing, camping, biking, and flying— searching for the best of the outdoors and then writing about it.

Tom is the nation?s top-selling author of outdoors guidebooks. He has been inducted into the California Outdoor Hall of Fame and has twice been awarded National Outdoor Writer of the Year, newspaper division, by the Outdoor Writers Association of America. He has also been named California Outdoor Writer of the Year five times, most recently in 2007. Tom is the outdoors columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle; his articles also appear in newspapers around the country. He broadcasts a weekly radio show on KCBS-San Francisco and hosts an outdoor television show on CBS/CW San Francisco.

Tom lives with his wife and sons in Northern California.

The author of 12 outdoor guidebooks, Ann Marie Brown is a dedicated California outdoorswoman. She hikes, bikes, and camps more than 150 days each year in a committed effort to avoid routine, complacency, and getting a real job.

Ann Marie's work has appeared in Sunset, VIA, and Backpacker magazines. As a way of giving back a little of what she gets from her experiences in nature, she writes and edits for several environmental groups, including the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Council. When not cycling along a California trail, Ann Marie resides near Lake Tahoe.
