Review

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

I have lived in SA for 28 years and watched many of the changes described in this book. Very accurate in all the history I know about. The previous history, from the arrival of the settlers through 1981 was fascinating. Many good photographs which give a comprehensive view of the Riverwalk.

A wonderful story of the river and how the city of San Antonio wraps its history around this river. The color and the emotion that evolves through the years to what it is today - a wonderful story for anyone who has visited the city. A required reading for anyone who lives or intends to live in such a vibrant and historical city. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Texas History.
