“I bought this book to take with us to Australia, to our friends who live in Adelaide. This book covers almost all of the favorite places Austinites enjoy. The picture quality is GREAT. The information was outstanding…I even learned some things. Great book to have out on the table. I know they will enjoy it.”

“How well this book is written, as charming as my home of twenty years, about which I’m at long last moved to learn, by way of Hamburger’s rendering, a history that I have long neglected. Thanks for writing such a lovely book, a must for locals, tourists and travelers, and Austinites far from home.”
