Kings Canyon National Park
Mike White


One of America's deepest gorges, Kings Canyon plunges more than 8000 feet and extends nearly eleven miles in length. Pristine alpine lakes reflect the surrounding silver-grey peaks, lupine and corn lilies flourish in meadows, and giant sequoias tower in world's largest stands of these ancient trees. This is the dramatic landscape of Kings Canyon National Park, southern neighbor to the more famous Yosemite.

Cool your feet in the turbulent clear waters of the South Fork Kings River, enjoy a picnic beside raucous Mist Falls, ramble on creekside trails through forests fragrant with cedar and pine, or regain your perspective from the park's highest points. Where the highway ends, the adventures begin…

Kings Canyon National Park: A Complete Hiker's Guide is the first comprehensive guide to the trails, campgrounds, outfitters, and facilities in the park and its environs. You'll find trips in neighboring Giant Sequoia National Monument, Sierra National Forest, and the Jennie Lakes and Monarch wilderness areas. Use this book to simplify your trip-planning--choose from 62 dayhikes, weekend overnights, or longer backpacks.

Lone Star Hiking Trail

Lone Star Hiking Trail
Karen Somers


One of the hidden jewels of Texas, the Lone Star Hiking Trail is the only long-distance National Recreation Trail in the state. At 128 miles (including loop trails), it is also the state’s longest continuously marked and maintained footpath. The trail meanders through flat and gently rolling forests of pine, oak, and mixed hardwood, and cypress swamps and bayous in the famed Big Thicket area in east Texas, in the Sam Houston National Forest. The seemingly endless variation of forests, much of it designated wilderness, provides a paradise for tree-lovers and bird watchers year-round. The trail is well-suited for both short and long hikes (of up to 10 days), appealing to dayhikers, overnight backpackers, long-distance hikers, and others seeking a peaceful outing.

  • The first guidebook to this trail; officially endorsed and promoted by the Lone Star Hiking Trail Club
  • Includes detailed topographic maps and GPS waypoints

    Meditations of Henry David Thoreau

    Meditations of Henry David Thoreau
    Chris Highland


    When Henry David Thoreau died at the age of forty-four in 1862, he had written a forest of articles and essays that eventually earned him a reputation as a first-rate naturalist, conservationist, and social critic. His gravesite in Concord, Massachusetts, is a pilgrimage site for readers who still turn to Walden, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, Maine Woods, "Civil Disobediance," and "Walking" for inspiration. Thoreau was a supreme articulator of America's conscience when the country was industrializing, facing battle over slavery, and developing its public education system. His thoughts are brook-clear and strangely prescient today.

    Chris Highland has chosen 60 thoughtful Thoreau quotations and placed them alongside the wisdom words of writers, philosopohers, and teachers from around the world. Bound in a lovely and compact format, the book totes easily along in your pocket, backpack, or picnic basket. Solitude never felt so cozy.

    Meditations of Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Meditations of Ralph Waldo Emerson
    Chris Highland


    Ralph Waldo Emerson's groundbreaking 1844 "Nature" essay influenced thinkers as disparate as Nietzsche, Thoreau, and Darwin, and his later writings seem to anticipate future discoveries in physics and psychology, as well as biology. Meditations of Ralph Waldo Emerson is a journey into the mind and heart of this great 19th century author, poet, and philosopher whose writings remain relevant and inspiring today.

    In this compact book, 60 selections from 30 years of his writings reveal the essence of Emerson's spiritual vision. Like his friends John Muir and Henry David Thoreau, Emerson saw images of the divine in the natural world, and rather than seeking to conquer wilderness, sought inspiration from it.

    Complementing each passage is an inspirational quote from historical and comtemporary luminaries including Margaret Fuller, the Dalai Lama, and Jack Kerouac, and voices from Taoism, Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Sufism.

    Meditations of Walt Whitman

    Meditations of Walt Whitman
    Chris Highland


    In revising Leaves of Grass for its 1856 edition, Walt Whitman sacrificed the large pages of the first edition, meant to accommodate his long lines of verse, for smaller pages, with the idea that the reader would be able to enjoy the "ideal pleasure": "to put a book in your pocket and off to the seashore or the forest." It is with this same ideal in mind that Chris Highland has assembled the fourth book in the successful Meditations series, Meditations of Walt Whitman, a pocket-sized compendium of passages from Leaves of Grass. Whitman's lifelong endeavor, Leaves of Grass, is the culmination of his poetic work, published first in 1855, and constantly revised until its last edition in 1881, eleven years before his death. In Meditations of Walt Whitman, passages from Leaves of Grass are paired with the words of a variety of historical and contemporary thinkers, such as Margaret Fuller, Friedrich Nietzsche, Jane Goodall, Mark Twain, Marc Chagall, Helen Keller, Buddha, Dante, and Bhagavad Gita.
