Within the seven county "metro" area that encompasses the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul lies a network of hundreds of miles of trails. Hikes were selected to be representative of the area, showcasing the park or region's main attractions or personality. Some of these trails are broad, paved corridors through multi-use parks generously developed to provide a myriad of recreational opportunities for the young and old, the robust trekker, and the casual stroller. Trails are based in a wide range of areas such as walkways of grass winding through majestic stands of Minnesota hardwoods. Other hikes are spider-web networks that remind one of well-used deer trails. Some are isolated within a pocket of greenery surrounded by vast ribbons of freeway concrete and broad subdivisions. Others are woven within the fabric of parklands so expansive that you could literally spend weeks hiking all the networks lying within their folds. Twin Cities' hiking is huge so get the guide that gets you there and back. This decisive guide to day hikes in the Twin Cities' area just got better. Updated maps, new hikes, new photos, and brand-new trailhead coordinates make Tom Watson's authoritative guide even more useful than before.

Harrisburg State Hospital opened in 1851 as the Pennsylvania State Lunatic Hospital, the first public institution in the state. Situated atop a hill overlooking the Susquehanna River, the original building was an early example of a Kirkbride design hospital. The facility closed in 2006 after serving the commonwealth for 155 years. Harrisburg State Hospital: Pennsylvania's First Public Asylum presents a pictorial history of the hospital from the first year of only 12 patients through the peak of state care, when the population reached over 2,500 in the 1950s. Harrisburg State Hospital was an innovative leader in the treatment of the mentally ill, pioneering new methods of therapy even before they were common practice. It was a community and a home for those whom society could not otherwise care for.
