About the book:

One city, 712 sets of steps, 44,645 treads, 24,108 vertical feet. Sort of like climbing Mt. Everest.

With Photos by Tim Fabian.

Many of Pittsburgh's steps are legal streets, and all of them reflect the city's unique topography and history. Together, these 712 sets of steps provide a vital link in the city's transportation system as well as unusual challenges for pedestrians, joggers, the bike police, and especially pizza delivery.

Whether you intend to climb, scamper or crawl them, Pittsburgh's public steps are a unique feature in this topographically challenging city. Author Bob Regan and photographer Tim Fabian have captured their history, use, charm and care in this well documented and wonderfully photographed book sure to enchant locals and visitors alike. The book includes several easy-to-follow walking tours, making it a handy field guide as well.

Includes 100 photos, maps, illustrations, and survey tables.
