Best Book About Baltimore

Spirit of Place by Sarah Achenbach and Bill McAllen

Posted 9/16/2009

Books about Baltimore tend to fall into one of three categories--dense scholarly works about the historical minutiae of this historic seaport town, site-seeing guides for tourists visiting the Inner Harbor highlights of the city, and crime writing. Spirit of Place (Charms City Publishing) is a rarer work--a book about Baltimore, written for Baltimoreans. Writer Sarah Achenbach and photographer Bill McAllen set out to create a love letter to the city, seen through the eyes of their subjects and the places they love, and in the process they give us a new view of the city itself.
