Hiking Guide to Kansas
by John W. Young, Catherine M. Hauber
Paperback from University Press of Kansas
ISBN: 0700609474

From the Konza Prairie to the Cimarron National Grassland, the Arikaree Breaks to the Spring River Wildlife Area, Kansas boasts hundreds of miles of marvelous hiking trails, many of which are unknown or unfamiliar to even longtime residents of the state. This book is the first complete guide to those outdoor destinations--the only book you'll need to explore and appreciate these natural treasures.

Catherine Hauber and John Young lead you over 430 miles of trails that showcase the beauty of Kansas's woodlands and wetlands, its prairies and high plains. Their Hiking Guide to Kansas covers trails found at 56 sites in all parts of the state--both popular routes like those along Clinton Lake and out-of-the-way sites like Big Basin Prairie Preserve.

After directing you to the trailhead, Hauber points out facts of interest along the way about history, geology, and wildlife, presenting them at a level of detail that will make any outing more meaningful. She provides trail lengths for each hike, notes access for bikers or horseback riders, and clearly identifies landmarks and trail blazes. She also has made the book as inviting as the trails themselves by including dozens of full-color photos that will make you want to lace up your hiking boots right away.

Another valuable feature of the book, John Young's state-of-the-art maps, show you exactly where the trails lead. Color-keyed to physiographic regions designated by the Kansas Geological Survey, these maps were developed using measurement techniques ranging from compass and pedometer to a global positioning satellite receiver and reflect painstaking attention to each bend and feature of the trail.

Whether you're a casual daytripper or a serious hiker, you'll find trails for every season in this book, the only guide you'll need for enjoying the state's wild places on foot.

Both a biography of Wilber "Bullet" Rogan and a history of his great Kansas City Monarchs teams, 1920-1938, this detailed work pays tribute to a man considered by some to be baseball's greatest all-around player. During his career, the Monarchs won two negro league World Series and five pennants, in addition to launching the careers of several outstanding players and conducting many barnstorming tours.
