2007 Benjamin Franklin Award: Best Regional Book --The Independent Book Publishers Association<br /><br />In this new, beautifully organized and illustrated book, Fisher has produced a comprehensive account of every aspect of the San Antonio River's natural origins and social history. Fascinating for its unique historical photos, architectural drawings and paintings, with extensive footnotes for the truly dedicated reader, "River Walk" is an eloquently told take of how the river has become both a commercial success and a source of inspiration for all who stroll along its banks. . . . Perhaps this book's most valuable contribution to our understanding of the River Walk's dynamics is Fisher's treatment of its development from the 1960s to the present day, which is less well known than the stories of its early days. --San Antonio Express-News<br /><br />Lewis Fisher gets it right. . . . A solidly researched text eloquently presented with detailed footnotes and illustrated with historic photographs and architectural drawings. --Texas Architect
