Title: 50 Hikes with Kids California
Author: Wendy Gorton
As a parent of children 1\2 who love the outdoors and others who want to see but not get dirty. This book is a great introduction to families who are looking for a vacation away from crowds and theme parks.
It was an advance copy so it wasn't complete and it has issues that will be fixed I assume after it is published.
This book will inspire parents to find a love for the outdoors as well as a vacation to California that will have everyone enjoying the adventurous outdoors.
