The Big Book of Adventure Travel by James C. Simmons
More and more Americans are opting for vacations that offer challenge and risk over holiday travel that is sedate and predictable. Simmons (Castaway in Paradise, Sheridan, 1993) writes for the reader who is interested in running Chile's Bio-Bio River, biking Utah's Kokopelli Trail, or studying mountain gorillas in Rwanda, for example. He describes nearly 400 vacations that span seven continents, as well as the major oceans and seas of the world. His tantalizing guide is divided into sections on land and water adventures; each section is further divided into major types of activities; and the individual trips representing each activity are presented by geographical region. The author provides the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of each trip operator, in addition to the trip's price category and the preferred season of travel. Indexes and discount coupons follow the text. Highly recommended.
