Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.
Location: California Bay Area

[quote=""1lila1""]There are a lot of historical missions and ruined settlements around here that are within a days hike around here. It's just too hot during the summer here in S. Cal to be out during the day but it's beginning to cool off so we plan to do a lot more hiking now. I'm trying to find a sort of historical hikes guide or something. We have lots of local hiking books but one focused on seeing historical sights would be a great find.[/quote]
I used to get a small local magazine called California Explorer that was loaded with dayhikes to local historical places of interest. Maybe they are still in business.

I was recently in Savannah, GA -- we spent some time wandering through the Colonial Cemetery, did a Ghost Tour (no ghosts but loads of history!) and stayed in an old renovated house (no ghosts there, either!).

Not quite the same but in November, we are going to see the King Tut exhibit in Atlanta.
