Walking St. Augustine: An Illustrated Guide and Pocket History to America's Oldest City by Elsbeth "Buff" Gordon is one of the most complete and enjoyable travel guides that we have ever read.
Many people do not realize that St. Augustine was already 224 years old when George Washington became President of the United States. Gordon's inclusion of facts like this and others in an conversational rather than tutorial manner make Walking St. Augustine both informative and entertaining.
For more than 200 pages, Gordon "retells landmark events, delves into the geneologies of the families who lives in St. Augustine for centuries, and highlights key points to visit within close driving distance."
If you are a Smartphone user, you'll be pleased to find that the book contains a QR Code you can scan that will allow you to enjoy Audio Tours of several St. Augustine sites from the book.
