Book review: Tourism and trails: cultural, ecological and management issues
Establishing tourism routes has been used as a traditional strategy to promote regional development. Whether the reasons are political, cultural, or environmental, route development has always been agenda driven (Briedenhann & Wickens, 2004; Lourens, 2007; Rogerson, 2007). In the given context, the book provides an insightful glance into the development of trails and routes, specifically focusing on the cultural, ecological, and management issues. It fulfils its aim in highlighting the importance of research on routes and trails in tourism development and congregating and conceptualizing existing research that has been quite disparate and fragmented.
