Founded in 2012, Wildsam uses unrivaled local insight and world-class writing to reveal the marrow of the world's great places. Known for its unique and fundamentally authentic guidebooks, Wildsam's publishing ethos blends a depth-finder style with a commitment to evocative storytelling. The guides have been praised by The New York Times, Outside, Travel+Leisure, The Los Angeles Times, and in 2015 were #4 on the prestigious "Traveler 50" List, presented by National Geographic. In 2019, Wildsam joined forces with the nation's leading local publisher, Arcadia, which was acquired by the former Penguin CEO and current Snap Chairman Michael Lynton and David Steinberger, former CEO of Perseus Books and current Chairman of the National Book Foundation. As a result of teaming up with Arcadia, Wildsam is actively building its editorial team and ramping up its production in 2020 and beyond.
