Tom DeMund, author of Walking the Farm, a new historical walking tour and hiking guide to the Stanford University campus and its surroundings, will discuss the hikes outlined in his book and the history of Stanford and the Bay Area. The chapters describing walks around campus include well-researched Stanford history to enhance a reader's enjoyment and knowledge about the university. Each of the on-campus walk chapters follows a theme, such as campus highlights, sculpture locations, sports facilities, science and engineering facilities, or the Stanford Research Park. Tom DeMund is a Stanford alumnus with a long history of Stanford involvement. He is also the author of an award-winning hiking book, now in its sixth edition, that serves as a "hikers' bible" for trails in a spectacular region of the Sierra Nevada. Tom's on-campus teammate and coordinator has been Stanford's Bill Lane Center for the American West, which is dedicated to advancing scholarly and public understanding of the past, present, and future problems affecting western North America.
