This is a beautiful, full-color guide to recreation on the “Public Lands,” those areas under the control of the US Bureau of Land Management (BLM). These lands comprise some 265,000,000 acres across 27 states. Detailed listings provide information on a full range of outdoor activities: biking, fishing, rafting, camping, horse riding, swimming, rock climbing—even dog sledding. Full-color photos and detailed maps explain where the areas are, what to see and do once there, what types of camping are allowed, how to contact the BLM office in charge of that site, and much, much more.
