While living in the Presidio National Park, Leslie Carol Roberts became enchanted with the park's 125-year old forest, native plant and habitat restoration, serpentine rock formations, and wild beaches just outside the Golden Gate. Roberts unearths stories of scientists, spiritualists, and artists around the globe engaged with specific and peculiar places, from the Indiana Dunes to Tasmanian euc forests to the work of landscape painters, to Iowa classrooms in this memoir pursuing an understanding what it means to live a life of creativity and creation.

Leslie Carol Roberts is an author, journalist and essayist. She has written hundreds of articles and essays for publications, including the Bellevue Literary Review, the Christian Science Monitor, and the Sydney Morning Herald Bangkok Nation, the Baltimore Sun. Roberts teaches at California College of the Arts in San Francisco, California where she is Professor and Chair of the MFA Writing Program. She lives in the Presidio National Park with her two children.


The book paints a sharp picture of the natural and historical aspects of the Presidio, which acts as platform that inspires broader consideration of the environment.... There is a certain beauty and elegance in Roberts's words and the rhythm and cadence of her writing. All the while, her text exudes a deep love and respect for the world around her. Simply put, Here Is Where I Walk is a breath of fresh air. -- (04/01/2019)
