Nashville is hot. Yes, of course, there’s the very popular TV series, but there’s also Wildsam Field Guides, the Nashville edition, the first in “a new American travel series with a bygone sense of place.” Wildsam’s editor, Taylor Bruce, is a New York-based writer, and, not surprisingly, words, not pictures, are his means of unlocking a city’s character. Billed as “part almanac, part urban lore, part memoir,” it’s chock-full of interesting tidbits—like hand-illustrated maps and interviews with locals; newspaper clippings and historical data; essays by musicians and chefs; and little-known curiosities that weave together a richly detailed American portrait more akin to Steinbeck than Lonely Planet. And, of course, we should have guessed. One look at Wildsam’s simple but stylish, and oh-so-literary cover should have been our first clue.
