Imagine having a hip, in-the-know friend in every city you wanted to visit. And imagine that he's excited when you say, “hey, I'm going to be in town for a few days; anything I shouldn't miss?” So excited, in fact, that he riffs for 145 entire pages about secret spots, local intel, insider trivia, and hot tips that you'd never have known otherwise. Anyway, that's kind of what a Wildsam Field Guide feels like. This is actually their second edition for Detroit, America's favorite comeback city, updated for 2021. Some highlights: Interviews with roller skating legend Rockin' Richard Houston, baker Eggy Ding, filmmaker dream hampton, singer Martha Reeves, boxer Willie Fortune and more. Expert picks for square pizza, workwear, vinyl records, printmakers and ice-skating. Select poetry from Naomi Long Madgett, Robert Hayden and Toi Derricotte. The best diners, jazz clubs, burger joints and more. A Motown Records timeline, historical dive into Ford's assembly line and hockeytown catalogue. Illustrated maps of the city's architectural marvels, neighborhood bars, arts destinations, urban farms and coney institutions. Original essays from Imani Mixon, Rollo Romig, and Rebecca Mazzes.
