Join us in celebrating a new book by Amherst resident Todd Felton, Walking Boston: 36 Tours Through Beantown's Cobblestone Streets, Historic Districts, Ivory Towers & New Waterfront. Felton, who is also author of A Journey into the Transcendentalists' New England & A Journey into Ireland's Literary Revival, gives urban trekkers an insider's guide to all that Boston has to offer—from revolutionary war battlefields to a revolutionary art museum, & from the 200-year-old Haymarket to the chic boutiques of Newbury Street. This two-color, portable guide features 36 walks, detailed maps for each trip, original photos, & critical public transportation information for every trip. Route summaries make each walk easy to follow, & a ’Points of Interest‘ section summarizes each walk's highlights. Walk descriptions include trivia about architecture, local culture, & the city's rich history, plus tips on where to dine, have a drink, & shop.
