About Wildsam Field Guide from their own blog –
Launched in the fall of 2012, WILDSAM is a series of American field guides, small books with a lot of soul, packed with local lore, interviews, memoir, hand-drawn maps, personal essays and more. Equal parts travel guide and tribute, the field guides suit both weekender and native.

I like their way how they present the stories.
If you have a sensitive observation, everyday is like a trip even you just stay around the same neighbourhood. Time to start to visit those small shops and little stalls around you from today. Talk to the stall owner and be friend with your neighbour. Look at the plants around your areas. Those plants must be specially selected by the local governor with some reasons behind it. This is my feeling after reading the contents of the guide from Internet. I think the editors must be a group of people like what in the video below. Got from the Wildsam’s blog. Got to get one of the guide to read more.
Note from Wikipedia about the group in the video –
Wild Cub is a Nashville-based indie quintet led by songwriter-composer Keegan DeWitt and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Bullock; its supporting members are drummer Dabney Morris, bassist Harry West, and keyboardist and synthesist Eric Wilson. Their song “Thunder Clatter” charted at #59 in the UK in August 2013.
