Riassunto: This enlarged and updated second edition of the classic guidebook by Diane Capito expands the coverage of the original edition, first published in 2001, to 41 walks in 28 towns. Descriptions of points of interest in 5 more towns are added for good measure. The carefully detailed maps guide you along main streets and down the unbeaten byways that define a town s soul. The author planned and researched the routes, then had others try the walks and check her information. There are precise directions plus locations of convenient parking, restrooms and restaurants. Sections on each town begin with a historical summary, followed along each route by a wealth of long-buried historical details that bring hundreds of small-town landmarks to life. The index offers a quick checklists of cemeteries, courthouses, museums, parks, nature trails and even, for five towns, eyewitness accounts of ghosts, one of which the author swears she encountered herself during preparation of the book. Though the routes are designed for comfortable walking, they are easily adapted for bicycling and driving as well.
L'autore: Diane Capito grew up taking family walks in her hometown of Kansas City, Missouri. She explored Southern California and Mexico on her own and in walking groups. She ended up in San Antonio, Texas, where she co-authored San Antonio on Foot and organized a series of neighborhood walking tours, finding time in between for freelance writing for a variety of newspapers and magazines. She approached Walking Hill Country Towns with typical enthusiasm and diligence. She planned the routes on her own, researched points of interest and had others both test the walks and check her information. The result is this unique walking guide to the charming towns of the Texas Hill Country.
