A completely updated and even more comprehensive guide to the beautiful Big Bend region of Texas. Included in this edition are six different national and state parks, eight adventures for the energetic visitor, and detailed mile-by-mile directions for five driving routes, including backcountry roads. Lodgings, restaurants, and events in fourteen different communities are also included. Learn how to book a luxury resort in the desert or a rustic cabin in the Davis Mountains, where to view world famous art or listen to cowboy poetry, dance under the stars, eat barbeque, raft the Rio Grande or hike to 7,835 feet–the variety is enormous. Jim Glendinning has been in the travel/touring business most of his life. He has lived in the Big Bend for over ten years and leads tours of small groups on adventures in the Big Bend region and into northern Mexico. Lots of illustrations and maps.
