We travel to grow - our Adventure Guides show you how. Experience
the places you visit more directly, freshly, intensely than you
would otherwise - sometimes best done on foot, in a canoe, or
through cultural adventures like art courses, cooking classes,
learning the language, meeting the people, joining in the festivals
and celebrations. This can make your trip life-changing,
unforgettable. All of the detailed information you need is here
about the hotels, restaurants, shopping, sightseeing. But we also
lead you to new discoveries, turning corners you haven't turned
before, helping you to interact with the world in new ways. That's
what makes our Adventure Guides unique. This signature Hunter
series targets travelers eager to really explore the destination,
not just visit it. Extensively researched and offering the very

user-friendly books provide all the details you need, including
prices. The best local outfitters are listed, along with contact
numbers, addresses and recommendations. A comprehensive
introductory section provides background on history, geography,
climate, culture, when to go, transportation and planning. The
books then take a region-by-region approach, plunging into the very
heart of each area and what adventures it offers, as well as a full
range of accommodations, historical sites, walking tours, museums,
shopping, restaurants for every budget, and festivals. Adventures

its faux Sphinx, plastic volcano and campy lounge acts, you can
head out to the Great Basin, with this book on your laptop, where
you will have the whole wild and naturally amazing state almost to
yourself. -- Amazon reviewer
