My wife and I have enjoyed many guide books on our frequent travels abroad. Minnesota Historical Society Press now offers a trim, very interesting guide to St. Paul's Summit Avenue and Hill Districts that remind us of our best tour guides. We have enjoyed hikes through these neighborhoods with renewed enjoyment thanks to all the historical and architectural detail the authors included.
