I was expecting MUCH more from this book than what it turned out to be because it is a NOLS book.(foolish me, I thought that meant something) I don't know where the reviewers got their page counts but there are only 79 actual pages of information in this booklet that measures 4 inches by 6 inches. You might get 112 if you count the forward and the author bio but I don't consider that when I count pages because it isn't the info I bought the book for. At most I consider this a pocket guide that I might carry for entertainment while hiking but not something I would consider as a stand alone source. The information in this booklet is ALL readily available on-line for free if you do a little research or even from a public library... Again not enough info for the cost, but it may be somewhere to start if it was one third the cover price.... My Opinion Only---- If you just have to have this book, Look for it in the bargain bin somewhere but you will be MUCH better off looking for something else with more coverage of the subjects only brushed on in this booklet.
