Wildsam City Guides
Charleston Field Guide
Founded in 2012, WILDSAM FIELD GUIDES is a modern travel series with a bygone sense of place. The guides bring to life what John Steinbeck describes as the "faraway joyous look" that accompanies curiosity. They move beyond itinerary, discovering genuine experiences, meeting real people and exploring urban heritage that's both gritty and delightful. Using local interviews, personal essays, illustrated maps and a city almanac, the field guides are full, offbeat and inviting - like all great cities.
In the Charleston edition learn about heirloom crops, beach music, civil rights legacies, historic architecture, and the many natural wonders of the Lowcountry.
