Field Guides – Wildsam

USA Made


There are too many great cities in this country to justifiably discuss in a few short words. Nevertheless, three of those great cities have been aptly explored and subsequently divulged in the American Field Guides by Wildsam ($17.95 each), which has pointed its lens of cultural focus on that pretty little city of Nashville, Tennessee, the haven of art and love in San Francisco, California, and the cream of the weird crop of Austin, Texas. Compiled of entries relative to each city, such as interviews, memoirs, hand-drawn maps and personal essays, these guides are packed full of the power of homestyle generosity, that kind of affection for hospitality you sense when a local passes on tidbits of directionality that you would have otherwise never, ever heard. The secrets of the traveler’s trade, so to speak, the ways of the wanderer’s world. To shed some light on the legitimacy of the Field Guides, let’s talk about editor (i.e., expert swashbuckler) Taylor Bruce, who has spent his last decade writing for the likes of National Geographic Adventure, Oxford American, Southern Living, Budget Travel, and Men’s Journal, just to name a few. What does that mean? E-x-p-e-r-i-e-n-c-e. Which is exactly what anyone who’s planning a day of adventure needs when it comes to bringing about the greatest success in said adventuring. Just look at the Field Guides as a giant and jolly group of wise fingers pointing you in all the right directions – pretty fitting imagery for anyone who yearns to wonder.
