"Between the Mississippi and Ohio rivers at the southern tip of Illinois is a "hidden" region that contradicts the state's flatland image. With scenic hills, natural rock formations, bluffs, ravines, streams, lakes, swamps and sloughs, Southern Illinois has much to offer nature enthusiasts. Hiker and naturalist Alan McPherson describes trails at 50 locations with public access in Southern Illinois. From a simple walk to strenuous hiking and from short distances to trails miles long, there is something for everyone who appreciates the outdoors. Unwilling to tell others to go where he has not gone himself, McPherson has hiked all of the trails he describes. He has written similar hiking books for Florida, Indiana and the Ozarks" -- From the publisher.
