Review: California Waterfalls, ISBN:
BF & I have owned the California Hiking book for years and love it. We decided to branch out into a Waterfall specific book, and choose this knowing Ann Marie's general style.

We've used it for close to 10 hikes so far, and have been very happy with the quality of the hikes themselves. She's accurate, IMO, on the beauty and difficulty of a hike.

Unfortunately, she is very NOT accurate in regards to distances to places and elevation ups & downs. When you're going to an unsigned road (Whitney Falls, p 46), it's helpful to have the exact mileage; not have her mileage be off by 2-3 miles. Not that the elevation gain was difficult, but Mossbrae Falls (p 56) is not 0 elevation gain. It's minor, but a very definite grade on the tracks you're following. And these are just some of the examples we've found.

All in all, I recommend the book. However, if the exact distance matters - like when you're trying to find an unsigned road - check other sources first. Don't just rely on her.
