Once a miner's outpost with cowboy riffraff, today this Western metropolis is basecamp for bluegrass lovers, outdoor entrepreneurs and travelers seeking a Rocky Mountain high.
Founded in 2012, Wildsam uses unrivaled local knowledge and soulful storytelling to reveal the marrow of the world's great places. They shed light on the lesser known, the complex, the real things that lead people into a depth-finder style of travel.
Their series of American field guides explore via prose and personality, mixing together archival research, personal interviews, long-form essays and hand-drawn maps. More akin to Kerouac's notebooks than traditional guidebooks, Wildsam celebrates the mysteries and magic of discovery found both near and far.
