About the author (2005)

Having recently moved to Richmond, Nathan Lott assumed the role of guidebook author with some trepidation. Nevertheless, he undertook the assignment, as he tells it, because he needed to walk the dog anyway. And in researching 60 Hikes: Richmond, he accrued sufficient knowledge of the Commonwealth's history, culture, and ecology to surpass lifelong residents. A writer and editor by trade, he still works in the River City, where he resides with his wife Elizabeth. The couple intends to continue exploring the mountains, monuments, and microbrews of the Old Dominion.
