This book is aimed at hot springs with easy access--no or very little hiking. Most are developed. It has good histories, good location information and maps, best times to visit etc., area attractions and a nice list of favorites. There is one entry, Hot Lake Hotel near La Grande, that seems rather odd to include since it is abandoned and no entry is allowed.
