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. The Savannah edition features: Interviews with sea change chef Mashama Bailey, Savannah Bee Company founder Ted Dennard, deep-sea fishing captain Judy Helmey, acclaimed baker Cheryl Day, and Reverend Thurmond Neill Tillman. Illustrated maps of the city's famed squares, historic details, and cemeteries. Essential intel on Savannah's art and design community, Gullah/Geechee culture, antique hunting, and courtyard garden snooping. How Juliette Gordon-Low founded the Girl Scouts, the city's Civil Rights Movement milestones, pirate kidnapping accounts, and one particularly haunted house. Expert picks for soul food, dive bars, vintage shops, farm stands, and bookshops. Original essays by Taylor Brown, Harrison Scott Key and Emily Testa LeMaster. The best ways to experience hidden beaches and the natural beauty of the coast and marshes. Excerpted writing by Savannah-born authors James Alan McPherson and Flannery O'Connor.
