Hiking Wyoming, Rev.
Bill Hunger
List Price: $
15.95 • Your Price: $11.17

Wyoming, with its rugged mountains, high plains, desert prairies, and canyonlands, presents hikers with a spectacular array of backcountry opportunities. Many areas, from Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks to the Wind River Range, are well-known, but they represent only a fraction of the hiking possibilities in Wyoming. Hiking Wyoming, formerly The Hiker's Guide to Wyoming, covers the well-known areas but also introduces hikers to some of the state's best-kept backcountry secrets. In Hiking Wyoming, former Wyoming wilderness ranger Bill Hunger descries seventy-five hikes throughout the state suited to dayhikers and veteran backpackers alike. The hike descriptions are complemented by maps and distinctive black-and-white photos, and the book also includes valuable information on backcountry safety and ethics. Hiking Wyoming is the perfect sourcebook for exploring Wyoming's beautiful backcountry.

Kip Carey's Official Wyoming Fishing Guide
Kip Carey
List Price: $

It is my great pleasure to introduce the new 2002 edition of Kip Carey's Official Wyoming Fishing Guide. Fishing waters from around the entire state of Wyoming are contained in this handy guide, in fact, there are over 1600 detailed waters listed. Specific directions, comprehensive descriptions, and maps to Wyoming's cold and warm water reservoirs, lakes, ponds, rivers, streams, and creeks from around the entire state are included in this complete fishing guide. This guide has it all, from the smallest of creeks to largest rivers, one-acre ponds to reservoirs the size of most towns. I recommend this book for anyone who is already familiar with fishing in Wyoming, to those who wish to discover all the wonderful fishing opportunities the state has to offer. There is not another book comparable on the market today, it is an invaluable guide whether it is used for fly-fishing, bait-fishing, spin-fishing, or even hiking and backpacking.

Back in the early 1950's a professor from the University of Colorado, by the name of Tim Kelley, began the incredible task of chronicling the fishing waters of Wyoming and Colorado. Tim Kelley's vision was to chronicle all of the waters of both states and to combine them into a single guide. The resulting Tim Kelley's Colorado and Wyoming Fishing and Hunting Guide was published every two years starting in 1954, with the last in 1990. I was able to purchase the rights to this indispensable guide in 1999, at which time I set about updating and completing a separate guide for Colorado, which was released in 2001. Kip Carey's Official Wyoming Fishing Guide is the result of my belief that Wyoming deserves a separate book dedicated to all the quality waters of the state. Included are hundreds of new entries, as well as, completely updated information on previously documented waters from the Wind River, Bighorn River, Snake River, Green River, Sweetwater River, and North Platte River drainages; as well as, complete coverage of fishing waters in Yellowstone National Park and northeastern Wyoming. In other words, the entire state of Wyoming is contained in the book!
