We'll have an interview with Peg Reiter, Jerry Schad's widow, on the show Wednesday.

Evening Edition airs weekdays at 5 PM and 6:30 PM on KPBS TV.

Jerry Schad introduced an untold number of people to the breathtaking variety of trails and landscapes in San Diego. He wrote about them and he showed them to us in his Afoot and Afield series on KPBS TV.

In September, San Diego said goodbye to the man who loved the natural beauty of the area - and who couldn't resist enjoying it on walks around the county.

When he died of cancer earlier this year, Schad had just published what would be his final book about hiking, "50 Best Short Hikes - San Diego." We'll speak with his widow, Peg Reiter, about his legacy.
