National Parks Traveler has this about Jack Bennett’s latest book.Dream Hikes Coast to Coast: Your Guide to America’s Most Memorable Trails
Jack is probably best known around these parts for his book about Canadian highpoints. Traveler notes:
In surveying the Highpointers Club, a 2,700-member group of hikers, climbers, and “list keepers” to settle on his collection of 30 hikes, Mr. Bennett set some tough guidelines for candidate trails: They had to be day hikes. No cross-country bushwhacking jaunts. No geographic requirements; in other, words, it didn’t matter if his entire list wound up comprised of hikes in one or two sections of the country.
