Always Adventuring in Arizona

Modest price, timely shipping, received in like new condition. This book was given to a friend, recently moved to Arizona to enable a better understanding of the naturalist environment and is the fourth copy but not the last I will give away. Thank you all, Dr. Joe

One of my bibles.

ADVENTURING IN ARIZONA by John Annerino [is] one of my bibles

The best.

Of all the general guidebooks I know on the Arizona outdoors, the best for hard-won information is John Annerino's ADVENTURING IN ARIZONA. A longtime resident of Prescott and Tucson, Annerino has been tooling about on the state's dirt roads and hiking trails for a couple of decades now, and he's covered a huge swath of territory firsthand. He takes in well-known destinations, from the Grand Canyon to South Mountain, but, more to the point here, he offers mile-by-mile instructions for more remote places like the Superstition Mountains and the Lechuguilla Desert. One of the treks he proposes, not for the faint of heart or easily sun-stroked, retraces Padre Eusebio Francisco Kino's route across southern Arizona's Camino del Diablo - a fitting name meaning "Devil's Highway," a route that comes the closest Arizona has to compete with Death Valley for sheer hellishness. Water is nearly non-existent along the route, and those attempting it should bring along at least four gallons per person per day, a luxury Kino could not enjoy. Many available guidebooks uncritically repeat long-obsolete information on the location of the Camino's few watering holes. Annerino went out to the place himself - in summer, no less - to map them on foot, an act that may well save a few lives some day. -New Times

Superb!-Detroit Free Press

"A superb new guidebook called ADVENTURING IS ARIZONA is a fast-moving blend of history and trekking advice for canyoneers, climbers and river rafters. Author John Annerino even can tell you, mile by mile, how to see the Grand Canyon in virtual solitude.

The best single guide book to outdoors Arizona!

'Adventuring in Arizona' takes the reader on a grand tour of the magnificent Arizona wilderness. No other guidebook introduces the wild country of this great state so well. The author, a Western outdoorsman of long experience, covers the Grand Canyon and every other well-known scenic attraction in depth. Better yet, he also describes dozens of undiscovered, out-of-the-way jewels like the Pine Mountain Wilderness. From car camping to whitewater rafting to technical rock climbing, this book has it all-- and thanks to the lively writing and many nuggets of historical and scientific fact, it makes an entertaining cover-to-cover read for those who only dream of the Arizona backcountry
