Mountains Without Handrails : Reflections on the National Parks, New Edition

Beloved by academic and general readers alike, Mountains Without Handrails, Joseph L. Sax’s thought-provoking treatise on America’s national parks, remains as relevant today as when first published in 1980. Focusing on the long-standing and bitter battles over recreational use of our parklands, Sax proposes a novel scheme for the protection and management of America's national parks. Drawing upon still controversial disputes—Yosemite...

Lonely Planet Timor-Leste (East Timor) (Travel Guide)

I am a Lonely Planet bigot, and I have always found these to be much more than money's worth. There needs to be some updating though to this edition. Tiger Fuel in Dili doesn't offer two wheelers for hire anymore. You can get them at Tadeo Bonito but Carlos only has a fleet of four. Nor does California Hotel present any view whatsoever of the setting sun. That view would come from Caz Bar about a kilometre or two away. Why do I give ...

Frommer's Memorable Walks in Paris

I enjoyed this guide book because of its practicality. It is small enough to carry and consult while walking. And it organizes things to see in a logical manner. Rather than going to see the Louvre you can see many interesting, notable sites on the way to and from the Louvre as well. I especially recommend this guide for first time visitors to Paris, a city I grew to love, in part due to this book's information.

Singapore: Culture Smart!: The Essential Guide to Customs & Culture (Culture Smart!)

I gave this four stars instead of five since the section on business custom does not describe how business women should dress and behave in Singapore. There's the passing remark that women should only initiate handshakes when one is introduced to a (presumably male) colleague; otherwise, there is nothing about how to dress or behave when working in Singapore. Can we wear pants? or must we wear skirts? The chapter about dining etiquet...

Seattle Food Crawls: Touring the Neighborhoods One Bite & Libation at a Time

As a recent Seattle Transplant I thought this was a great book to recommend new places and hidden gems in Seattle. This book is laid out by neighborhood with top picks for breakfast, brunch, dinner, drinks/ late night food. I've earmarked a ton of yummy places to try and have made it a goal to do a full neighborhood food crawl this summer with some friends. Overall enjoyed the book and found new recommendations that even my local fri...

DuMont Reise-Taschenbuch Reiseführer Kreta

Nur manchmal hätten wir zu dem einen oder anderen Bauwerk mehr Infos gewünscht. Leider gibt es die echten Kunstführer nur noch im Antiquariat. Über Ärchäologische Museum hätten wir gere nich mehr gelesen. Oder über Die Ausgrabungen von Malia, wobei dort der Fürher, den Hr. Schneider auch gepriesen hat, da war und eine tolle Führung gemacht hat.
