Adventures On America`s Public Lands

By Mary Tisdale and Bibi Booth, editors 1588340813

The Bureau of Land Management (all you non-Westerners say together "WHO?") oversees some of the US of A`s greatest outdoor recreational possibilities. Until now, many of them have fallen into the "Best Kept Secrets" category, but this new Department of Interior survey blows the doors off the secret. From New Mexico to Alaska - and even some sites in Florida, the Dakotas and some Eastern States - opportunities to hike, bike, ride your four-wheeler, watch the birds, plants and animals, explore slot canyons, high peaks and ancient historic sites are all detailed in this beautifully illustrated tome. If you`re headed West (or live here), this one is essential. 2003.
