The Ultimate Desert Handbook : A Manual for Desert Hikers, Campers and Travelers

From the Author: I intended The Ultimate Desert Handbook to be the book I always wanted to have when exploring the desert, but could never find on the bookshelves. Far from being an ordinary trail guide or 'desert survival' tome, the Ultimate Desert Handbook was written to provide hikers and other outdoors lovers with information on the deserts of the world, the peoples, plants and wildlife of North America, and how to safely enjoy and coexist in a new and perhaps unfamiliar environment. From getting water out...

Central Colorado 4-Wheeling

Here are descriptions of 24 of the most popular 4-wheel drive routes in the mountains and valleys near Aspen, Leadville, Crested Butte, Marble, Redcliff, and other former mining towns of central Colorado. During the late 1800s mining had flourished in these locations, but after the repeal of the Sherman Silver Purchase Act in 1893 the area was virtually deserted. Left behind was a system of roads winding to the abandoned mining towns and mines. Today the 4-wheeler can follow these avenues of history along treacherous river canyons, through scenic alpine valleys, and over spectacular mountain passes to get glimpses of the past and to enjoy Colorado's spectacular beauty.

Guide to Colorado Backroads & 4-Wheel...

Over the years, I think I've read most of the books on Colorado four-wheel drive roads, and probably have driven something like 25% of the roads described in this book. All things considered, Wells's book is the best of the bunch by a considerable margin. Errors are inevitable in books like these, but Wells seems to me to have made very few. In addition, the introductory how-to material was useful for tourist clods like myself. [ a reviewer]


Guide to Colorado Backroads & 4-Wheel... Colorado is a maze of 4x4 trails and a Mecca for four-wheelers from around the country. You could spend a bunch of time rounding up the maps to navigate the Colorado outback, but you'd still be shooting blind in many ways. Not only does Charles Wells give you detailed and accurate directions, he clues you in to the difficult spots on the trails and offers you advice on how to surmount them. This book picks up where Volume 1 of his Colorado guide leaves off, and between the two books, every trail worth 'wheeling in Colorado is documented. The only ones excluded are those that might have been opened after the book was published and a couple of the most hellish that are best left to rock buggies. As is usual for Wells, the book is easy to carry, easy to use and as accurate as a sharpshooter's rifle.
