For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
This guide is about hiking and generally exploring desert areas, specifically southwest Utah and adjacent areas (southern Nevada and northern Arizona). There is no better way to experience the ruggedness and beauty, the history of settlement by Native Americans and later pioneers, and the solitude than by simply hiking and exploring. The purpose in writing this book is to enhance the enjoyment of all who wish to sample the richness of southwest Utah and adjacent areas.

Included in the 150-page book are more than 25 color maps and more than 50 color photos taken during the hikes. (I took all the photos including the cover.) Twenty-five hikes are featured, each one includes: a general description of the hike; trailhead access; average hiking time; hiking distance; fees and permits; elevations; best season for the hike; trail rating (difficulty); type of hike; United States Geological Survey map(s) used for the hike; online resources about each hike; a sense of humor/playfulness for each hike; and a full description of finding the trailhead and the hike.
Additional chapters cover “How to Use This Guide,” “Desert Hiking Tips,” “Quick Hiking Guide,” “Trailhead Locator Maps,’ and five pages of “Information Sources.”
