The story of Walking Flagstaff
At age 71, martial artist and Marine George Breed retired from a career in psychology and began walking the paths, streets, and back alleys of Flagstaff. His photo blog, “Walking Flagstaff,” became well known and blossomed into a popular Facebook page. More than 10 years later, he’s still walking and photographing, sharing the sights and stories of a special town from a perspective car dwellers never see.
Recently, George decided it was time to collect some of those photos into a book. In the coming year, that’s what we’re going to do. We’re planning to make a beautiful, durable book that celebrates George’s vision and the unique town in which he lives.

Support this project
George’s tribe is united in their appreciation for his artistic eye, humble heart, and wise soul. Seriously, if you’ve met George in the real world or on Facebook, you know what we’re talking about. That tribe is the force that will make his book dream a reality.
We’re launching a Kickstarter campaign in May of 2020. If you’ve visited the signup page, you’ll be in the know for all things Kickstarter.
The Project Team
George started working with about 35,000 images in March of 2020. He enlisted the support of Jake Bacon (chief photographer at the Arizona Daily Sun newspaper) to curate that collection down to a 350-image group from which final selections will be made.
Soulstice Publishing is honored that George selected us as his publisher. Julie Hammonds is the project manager.
We’ve enlisted the help of Flagstaff graphic designer/teacher Kayley Quick to lend her creativity and artistry to the Kickstarter campaign.
