'Walking books with real maps ... Mountains are beautiful so hiking books should be too ...We were tired of getting lost using the sketch maps in walking books: a waste of our precious vacation time. And we hate having to buy both a book and a map! We want you to be able to actually navigate using our books. That is why all our books contain REAL 1:25,000 or 1:50,000 scale maps for each route. We licence these maps from the official mapping agencies. This makes more work for us but we think it is worth it.'
