This Land: A Guide to Central National Forests

This Land is a comprehensive field guide that provides detailed information about the natural features, wildernesses, scenic drives, campgrounds, and hiking trails of the national forests in the central United States.

The book covers the states of Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming. It is part of a three-volume series of field guides.

The book is organized by state and by forest, providing readers with a wealth of information on each forest’s special features and attractions.

The author gives the size, location, facilities, and history of each forest, as well as travel directions and where to find more information. Alternative routes highlighting sites and features provide options for the traveler.

What I Liked

I love that this book exists. I think that our National Forests are underrated, underfunded, and underpromoted. They are a national (and world) treasure. This book does a good job cataloging the what, where, and why of each unit.

What I Did Not Like

It’s a a reference-style book, so don’t expect a sit down, narrative style book.
