Read by John O'Dell. Once again, its listed retail cost was way overpriced. While a bit old, this also is a good primer to the state's trails. The trail descriptions and maps are very basic, albeit accurate from the two trails in it that I've hiked.

US-20 crosses the Mississippi River at Dubuque, which, like Galena, on the Illinois side, was one of the oldest settlements on what was once the nation’s western frontier. It then stops off for a look at Chicago before winding east through the newly resurgent, former Rust Belt along the Great Lakes. The historic Mohawk Trail carries us past Lexington and Concord and into Boston, retracing Paul Revere’s historic ride-in reverse-before following old US-6 to the tip of Cape Cod at the lovely and lively resort of Provincetown, where the Pilgrims really arrived in America, way back in 1620.

The River to River Trail is a 160 mile (256 km)-long hiking trail that serves Shawnee National Forest in far southern Illinois. The trail is used by both equestrians and hikers. About half is on off road trails. Its eastern terminus has historically been Battery Rock, overlooking the Ohio River but now generally Elizabethtown, Illinois is used as the eastern terminus. The western terminus is in Grand Tower, Illinois, at the Mississippi River

The American Discovery Trail is a system of recreational trails and roads which collectively form a coast-to-coast hiking and biking trail across the mid-tier of the United States. Horses can also be ridden on most of this trail. It starts on the Delmarva Peninsula on the Atlantic Ocean and ends on the northern California coast on the Pacific Ocean. The trail has northern and southern alternates for part of its distance, passing through Chicago and St Louis respectively.

The men stopped to look at the sky, at the smoke rising above the trees. One of the men was very tall and his hair was cut short to his head-a sign that he was in mourning for someone dead. We'd be lost before morning. That is why, when no one was looking, I broke off twigs all day and dropped them along the trail.

This guide is a necessary and wise purchase for anyone planning to hike the River to River trail. Positives: topo maps with the trail marked on it in red; interesting local historical info; suggestions of some good side hikes to investigate if you have time; a nice listing of accommodations, campgrounds, stables, etc. that are close to the trail.

Drawbacks (that I hope will be addressed in the next edition of the guide - my review is for the 3rd Edition, copyright 2002): the maps listed with each section title are off (starting on page 42); the distances estimated are off, sometimes significantly (the guide tends to estimate them as being shorter than they are in reality). My feet suspected this early on in hiking the R2R trail, but verified it once I purchased a GPS unit. If you are planning to hike this in a series of day trips, I would suggest contacting the Illinois Department of Transportation and requesting one of their free official bicycle maps (Shawnee Region, Map 9) to help you find your way to obscure trailheads that require driving on gravel roads. This is very helpful used in conjunction with the trail guide.

I've purchased many hiking guides and I've found this one to be the very best. Packed full of must-know information, it will answer all of your questions about hiking the River to River trail - whether you're a horseback rider, hiker or a bicycler.

I found the author, John O'Dell, very accessible and eager to answer all questions. He is even willing to pick you up at the end of your hike and return you back to your vehicle for a very reasonable fee. Thank you very much John O'Dell for your help. Would also like to thank you for having the foresight and knowledge to write such a good book.

I just purchased this guide from the organization and was sadly dis-appointed. I was expecting a good map with water sources, re-supply points, campsites, etc... I would recommend just getting an Illinois state map, make your way to Elizabethtown, Illinois and look for the trailhead and start hiking. You would be farther ahead, and have your money in your pocket.

I can't see how they justify 80.00 for a used book when I can go to the River to River website and order a new one for 30.00 total! What a rip off!
