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 Washington DC edition dives into the “grandeur and complexity of official Washington and the vibrant life of purely local DC” and includes content from bestselling young-adult novelist Jason Reynolds, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, noted local chef Erik Bruner-Yang, legendary crime writer George Pelecanos, and more. Some highlights: “DC's rich music history, key moments in American politics, neighborhood life in Anacostia and Washington's extraordinary museums, libraries and archives”... and much more.
