Winner of a National Outdoor Book Award Honorable Mention, Hiking Virginiais indispensable for exploring the Commonwealth. Authors Bill and Mary Burnham breath fresh air into popular Virginia destinations, and explore commonly overlooked yet equally dramatic hikes. Explore the history of a young American nation; watch stories of lost cultures come alive; and imagine the ghosts of Indian raiders, moonshiners, and outlaws haunting the backcountry routes of the past. Packed with notes on plants, trees, and geology, plus a list of local attractions and "good eats and sleeps" for the weary hiker, Hiking Virginiacovers the Commonwealth's outdoors from the sea shores to the mountain slopes, past and present. Also included is a special section detailing the Appalachian Trail through Virginia, taking thru-hikers along the six-week route from Damascus, Virginia to Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Inside readers will find: full-color photos, detailed color maps, accurate route profiles showing the ups and downs of each hike, tips on equipment, trip planning, hiking with dogs and children, accurate directions, difficulty ratings, trail contacts, and more.
Bill and Mary Burnham are co-authors of hundreds of magazine articles and several guidebooks, including Knack Car Camping for Everyone, Knack Kayaking, and 2008 NOBA award winner, The Florida Keys Paddling Atlas. They live on the Eastern Shore of Virginia where they guide kayak trips, write for several publications, and post their adventures on www.BurnhamVirginia.com and www.Burnham-Florida.com.
