Seabury Blair spent 30 years as the outdoors editor of the Kitsap Sun newspaper in Bremerton, but the Spokane native never forgot his roots. The author of nine guidebooks, he spent the summer of 2016, when he was 75, hiking the trails of Spokane and North Idaho to compile his new book Day Hike! Spokane, Coeur d’Alene & Sandpoint. Or, as he put it in an email, “dragging my fat, sorry butt around the Inland Northwest in the cause of telling hikers where to go — in a good way.” Blair’s folksy charm infuses his guidebook, and will surely come through when he discusses his books at Auntie’s.
