"Shows how the developers of Highland Park in Dallas and River Oaks in Houston were trying to create better living conditions in a countryside atmosphere away from the uncontrolled development that had blighted late 19th-century and early 20th-century urban neighborhoods in Texas. Also explores why planned suburban and community growth failed at the city-wide level and remained confined to elite suburbs. Also looks at subdivisions in Fort Worth, San Antonio, Amarillo, Wichita Falls, Beaumont, Galveston, and Port Arthur to provide information on how city planners worked with landscape architects to incorporate infrastructure improvements, coordinate landscape planning, and employ such legal devices as restrictive covenants to shape elite space coherently. The work of Texas' foremost suburban house architects, such as C.D. Hill, William Ward Watkin, and John F. Staub, is also analyzed"--

The resort town of Park City, Utah may be one of the most hiker friendly places in the world. A free public transportation system, coupled with more than 400 miles (640 km) of manicured trails in and around the town, provides easy access to mountain and canyon forests, lakes, streams, fields of flowers, geologic wonders, wildlife viewing, and stunning scenery. Residents and visitors will find this book indispensable for discovering and navigating the bounty of trails that crisscross Park City's diverse terrain. Included are maps and directions for 45 hiking routes around the town, suburbs, parks and ski resorts. Most of the hikes are less than 5 miles (8 km) long and none takes you more than 10 miles (16 km) away from Park City's lodging and fabulous dining. Each hike is described in terms of difficulty, special features and how to get to the trailhead. You'll also find valuable information about trail etiquette, hiker safety and first aid, and hiking with kids and dogs. Are your sunglasses adequately protective at high altitude? Do your hiking shoes provide sufficient support? Would you know what to do if you encountered a coyote? How best can a hiker stay safe in an electrical storm? Do trekking poles make hiking harder or easier? Is it okay to hike alone? Does exercising at altitude boost athletic performance? Do you have a medical condition that makes hiking risky? Park City Hiking Guide provides answers to these questions and a wealth of practical information about health issues related to hiking, high altitude living and travel, footwear, and hiking gear, from the perspective of a seasoned physician and lifelong hiker.

Walking Methods

This book introduces and critically explores walking as an innovative method for doing social research, showing how its sensate and kinaesthetic attributes facilitate connections with lived experiences, journeys and memories, communities and identities. The book situates walking methods historically, sociologically, and in relation to biographical and arts-based research, as well as new work on mobilities, the digital, spatial, and the sensory. The book is organised into three sections: theorising; experiencing; and imagining walking as a new method for doing biographical research. There is a key focus upon the Walking Interview as a Biographical Method (WIBM) on the move to usefully explore migration, memory, and urban landscapes, as part of participatory, visual, and ethnographic research with marginalised communities and artists and as re-formative and transgressive. The book concludes with autobiographical walks taken by the authors and a discussion about the future of the walking interview as biographical method. Walking Methods combines theory with a series of original ethnographic and participatory research examples. Practical exercises and a guide to using walking as a method help to make this a rich resource for social science researchers, students, walking artists, and biographical researchers.

On Looking begins with inattention. It is about attending to the joys of the unattended, the perceived 'ordinary.' Horowitz encourages us to rediscover the extraordinary things that we are missing in our ordinary activities. Even when engaged in the simplest of activities like taking a walk around the block, we pay so little attention to most of what is right before us that we are sleepwalkers in our own lives.
