Unlike many of the other reviewers, however, I'll say that providing all the detail about the drive is unnecessary. I have never used it and, now that we have navigation apps like Gaia, there is no need to waste space or pages on all the detail. Providing GPS waypoints at the major trail junctions with a physical description of that junction is all that is necessary.
I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 because there is one of author who outdoes Peter Massey and his collaborators, Roger Mitchell. Mitchell, it is clear, really lived and loved the trails he recounts and has done far more homework about the history and fauna of each route. It's hard to believe he had time for it!
Most of the drives in this book, and all of the California Trails books, are the easier drives. Someday someone will produce a book series called "Challenging and Unknown California 4x4 Trails" and there ought to be a big market for that one!
My final comment is about the binding. Whenever I purchase these books, I routinely take them to the local Fedex/Kinko's to get rebound using a spiral binding that allows them to lay flat. I'd recommend this to everyone. When the book arrives at your doorstep, take it immediately to Kinko's to get rebound.
Better than average guide book.
