Reviews for previous editions: 'Trailblazer has a strong reputation for the idiosyncratic but very useful maps that illustrate these handy guides, which are small and light enough to slip into a backpack or coat pocket'. The Daily Telegraph (UK) 'Packed with information and excellent hand-drawn maps, these are essential companions'. Wanderlust Magazine (UK) 'To read it makes you wish to be there walking the route. Recommended'. Backpack, Journal of the Backpackers Club '...the Trailblazer series stands head, shoulders, waist and ankles above the rest. They are particularly strong on mapping...' The Sunday Times
