Apart from all the useful and motivational info, the Hiking Humboldt books are just pleasing objects to have and handle. I’ve used a lot of guidebooks, and these are extraordinary – beautiful, dense with information and, mercifully, entirely free of the Papyrus font.

I did a huge, detailed comparison of everything available and wound up buying a sweet Moonstone bag made right here in Arcata (which still works). Funny that 30 years later, the highest quality guidebooks you can buy are also conceived and printed locally.
