Glendinning’s ‘Adventures in the Big Bend’ now in third edition By KELLY FENSTERMAKERJim Glendinning’s third edition of Adventures in the Big Bend, published by Iron Mountain Press, is now available in local bookstores for $18.95.This practical 300-page guidebook has for five years been the only general purpose guide for visitors and local people alike. Four maps and 34 black and white photos add to the book’s usefulness.The Dallas Morning News wrote of the second edition: “The first rule of travel in the Big Bend is to carry water and a map. The second rule: Take along Adventures in the Big Bend”.In the third edition, Glendinning has wisely retained the existing book chapters:The Big Bend, Regional Attractions, Adventures, Scenic Routes and Communities, extending from Sanderson to Van Horn. He has concentrated on listing all new services that have opened in the past three years, as well as giving advance notice of some future restaurants, motels and galleries. The user-friendly pages are interspersed with some essays about Big Bend’s past. The final section includes a reading list about the area, courtesy of Front Street Books.Alpine native and state Representative Pete Gallego commented about the latest edition: “Some of these places I never knew existed.”
