When you are ready (and the world is ready) to travel again, here’s an open invitation to visit my home town. Seattle! I’m an actual native, and that is vanishingly rare these days since my fair city has grown many fold since my humble birth here.
Wildsam, https://wildsam.com/seattle-field-guide, a cool publishing company is putting out field guides to cities like Austin, San Francisco and Denver, and other interesting places around the country. The Seattle edition is just hot off their press.
One of the quirks of their field guides is to include three essays by locals. I was asked to write one, and I was delighted to contribute.
“Wildsam Seattle weaves together the salty, misty past of Gold Rush hustlers and jet-building dreams with a modern metropolis intimately linked to the outdoors. Inside you’ll find stories from deep-sea fishermen, artists, entrepreneurs, kayak builders, grunge record producers and the leader of the Indigenous nation at the heart of Seattle history.”
