Wildsam: American Field Guides + Giveaway

It's time to plan that weeklong vacation, but you're not exactly sure where to start? So you immediately scour the internet in search of accommodations, flight costs, tips, and places to eat. It seems like the days where you actually pull out a map and plan your trip are long gone. Or better yet, paying a visit to your local bookstore to grab an insiders guide is now a thing of the past.

In comes the beautifully designed and well put together Wildsam Field Guides.

Wildsam was founded in 2012, with the belief that people want to know the truth behind a place. The whole truth and nothing but the truth — the good and the bad, both beautiful and broken. They aim to point travelers towards unforgettable experiences by shedding light on not only the places, but the people who make these places unique and interesting.

Their city and road trip guides are a combination of historical anecdotes, local interviews, short essays and hand-drawn maps. This provides a deeper understanding for place — far beyond what you might expect. Don't worry, these guides offer a highly curated list of recommendations too.
