About this book

From reviews of the first edition: "This deceptively slender volume is three things: a how-to book, an aesthetic feast and a moral tale.... To save a last remnant [of the forest] is a triumph, but it is a triumph to be savored in sadness. Our ancestors found East Texas a land of beauty; we leave it a land of beauty spots." --Dallas Morning News BIG SLOUGH. TURKEY HILL. INDIAN MOUNDS. UPLAND ISLAND. LITTLE LAKE CREEK. This guide provides all the information a visitor needs to understand, enjoy, and protect these unique wildernesses. Expanded from the 1986 edition, it includes three new chapters that offer a wealth of additional and updated detail about the diverse forest communities that hikers will encounter in the areas. Scenic Bend of the Neches, a recently proposed Research Natural Area, is also covered for the first time. Designed for a wide range of explorers, from casual walkers to primitive campers, the book guides you to the wildernesses' perimeters by road, suggests walking routes to choice spots inside, and even recommends places to camp. Redesigned and updated maps complement the text, which is illustrated with artistically framed nature photographs.
