Wildsam Boston takes readers deep into the city’s traditions and lore, from the Revolution to the Red Sox. But it also reveals the dynamic new Boston of today, spotlighting the world-class food scene, diverse arts world and amazing universities. With trusted locals leading the way, our guide goes deep on Irish bars, academic brilliance, Paul Revere and immigrant history—but also explores the vibrant, diverse and fast-changing city of today. Contributors include novelist Sam Graham-Felsen, hip-hop journalist and historian Dart Adams, poet Frankie Concepcion, wine expert Suhayl Ramirez and restaurant owner Tony Barros.

“From the Charles River, you see the State House with its gold dome, and these low, historic brick buildings. And then behind that, the city rises up onto the horizon. So beautiful, the combination of the old and the new.” Holly Salmon, art conservator
