Tracy Salcedo wins 2020  National Outdoor Book Award

Tracy Salcedo of Glen Ellen was recently awarded the prestigious 2020 National Outdoor Book Award for Outdoor Adventure Guidebook for her book Hiking Lassen Volcanic National Park, 3rd Edition, published by Falcon Guides. From a challenging climb up Lassen Peak to easy rambles around crystal clear lakes, this indispensable guide covers the best of the Northern California national park with 59 hike descriptions. Information on campsites, backcountry permits, safety, trail finder table, and a list of the author’s favorites, as well as the natural and human history of the park, make this an essential guide for visitors to this national treasure.

According to the National Outdoor Book Awards, “Salcedo has been hiking the trails of Lassen for over 20 years, and her many days on those trails plainly show as she accurately guides you on the 50 trails highlighted in the book. Everything you need is there: nicely rendered maps, color photos, difficulty ratings, mileage charts, and helpful advice from one who knows.”

Salcedo has written over 20 hiking guides to destinations in California and Colorado. She’s also the author of Search and Rescue Alaska and other titles focused on the outdoors. She is a regular contributor to the Kenwood Press.
