Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For tireless seekers of the authentic." WALL STREET JOURNAL
"This is the freshest-feeling guidebook since On The Road, that Kerouac thing. And Bruce’s has better drawings." - PASTE
"Unlike traditional guidebooks that list the same old must-see sights and touristy neighborhoods, this new series, entitled Wildsam Field Guides, gets at the soul of a city." - CONDE NAST TRAVELER
"An intricate portrait of place; part guide, part tribute, part artwork." - CEREAL
"Your grandpa’s guidebook…loaded with local interviews, lore, hand-drawn maps, and city secrets. Wildsam launched its charmingly throwback series in 2012." - NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVELER

Meet the Author

Taylor Bruce founded the Wildsam series of American field guides in 2012. His guides incorporate personal essays, local interviews, illustrated maps, and archival anecdotes to capture the living history of some of America’s favorite cities including San Francisco, New Orleans, Charleston and Detroit. Selected by National Geographic as a part of the prestigious “Traveler 50” list in 2014, the series will expand in summer 2016 to include guides to great American road trips. Previous to starting Wildsam, Taylor’s writing appeared in Men’s Journal, Paste, and Oxford American, among others.
