Walking Albuquerque: 30 Tours of the Duke City's Historic Neighborhoods, Ditch Trails, Urban Nature, and Public Art (Walking)by Stephen Ausherman
Synopses & Reviews
Given its history and massive sprawl, we must admit that, unlike Nancy Sinatraand#8217;s boots, Albuquerque was not made for walking. However, that doesnand#8217;t mean the art of walking has met its demise here. A resurgence in plans and efforts to make it walkable again indicates that the city is on the verge of a pedestrian renaissance. In the meantime, navigating it by foot requires some local guidance and expertise. Thatand#8217;s where Walking Albuquerque by local author and explorer Stephen Ausherman comes in handy. With 30 routes mapped out in the valley, the heights, and beyond, itand#8217;s the first guidebook of its kind to cover the entire city and surrounding areas, including tourist sites and famous filming locations along with several hidden treasures most locals donand#8217;t even know about. Rich in history and obsessive in detail, Walking Albuquerque is written to encourage readers to take the next step and make each walk an enjoyable little journey.
