I was honored and pleased by Mary Ann Gwinn’s amazing review of Seattle Walks in the Seattle Times today.
“Seattle Walks” is a guided tour organized into 17 different walks, accompanied by photos and handy maps that cover almost every neighborhood, from downtown to Lake Union to the International District to Green Lake to West Seattle. Each walk is from 1.1 to 7 miles long — you can complete them in a morning, a day, or off and on over several days. Bring your binoculars — some of the sights are several stories up.
Williams sees what others don’t because he doesn’t have a smartphone. He doesn’t even have a cellphone (he does have a slim 21st-century laptop). He’s the son of two historians — one a UW professor, the other a cookbook writer and food historian. He left Seattle for a few years, returned and has documented the city ever since.
