Russell is an electrical and computer engineer professor at Iowa State University who was born and raised along the Lewis and Clark Trail in Idaho and Montana. We bought the book for a hiking vacation coming up, so we haven't used it yet, but we've used hiking books many times, and I feel this one will be a big help. Be aware that it covers a specific area of Idaho - Route 12 - so you'll want another book if you plan to be elsewhere. Forty-four hikes are described in detail, with directions to each.

What is more, increasing numbers of people are interested in following the route themselves-not always a wise idea, as is certainly the case with the area described here.

On their return Lewis and Clark directed the execution of new maps detailing with remarkable accuracy the features of the country that they had traversed. Realizing the deficiencies and incompleteness of the volumes done by Reuben Gold Thwaites in 1904–5, Donald Jackson may have been the first to formally declare the need.

Be aware that it covers a specific area of Idaho - Route 12 - so you'll want another book if you plan to be elsewhere. Forty-four hikes are described in detail, with directions to each. There are good maps for each hike, a graph of elevation gain and distance, and description of difficulty. The book includes a history of the trails and of the area, and also sections on geology, necessary equipment, and possible dangers to be aware of.

We haven't done any of the hikes, yet. Based on the columns she used to write for the newspaper, I'm sure the information will be very good. We'll start to try a few out after the snow is gone and it's pretty much done raining.
