Finding Your Way in Asheville 
by Betsy Ball, Steve Shanafelt and Cecil Bothwell 
(2005, Paperback)
Signed by 2 authors  Betsy Ball & Cecil Bothwell  Cover has some wear, the inside pages are clean, tight & unmarked.                                                                                                                                   From the back coverHow to use this book:This guide is based on the way real people really visit a city, or at least the way we think real people should really visit a city. Going to eight different places in distal parts of town in one day not only wastes nonrenewable resources and generates air pollution, it fritters your valuable tourist time. There is more to life than driving and parking. Walking, particularly in a city of Asheville's walkable scale, generates memories of gargoyles and trees and flowers and bricks and faces and sounds and smells. Real stuff. Driving generates memories of your dashboard and your windshield and your rear-view mirror and that irritating grinding metallic noise somewhere under the hood that you are praying isn't going to be as expensive as it sounds. Warning! Warning! Warning! Warning! Warning!If your idea of a great vacation is shopping at a mall (or, shudder, an outlet mall) and eating at national chain restaurants, you have just wasted your money on this book. Now would be a good time to return to the independent bookseller where you bought it and politely ask for a refund. Yes, Virginia, Asheville has a mall and a lot of chain restaurants and if you need a guide book to find them you are in a kind of trouble that we are not qualified to address.Look under "Counselors" in the Yellow Pages.We are not going to direct you to national chain anything. We have mentioned tiny regional chain somethings if we decided they are unique enough to warrant it. The only exception to this rule is a local health-food grocery chain that has become a big player in its field. But we both remember when it lived in a tiny, funky storefront downtown and we share a little (unwarranted) pride in its success.About the AuthorsCecil Bothwell and Betsy Ball are long-time residents of Asheville who know the city inside, upside, downside and out. Bothwell is former managing editor of the local alternative weekly and winner of multiple national and regional writing awards. Ball is more sensible, sensitive and balanced than that.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       If you like deals on books check out my                                                               "Bulk Lots of Books" category                                                                                    in my eBay store.
