Jerry Schad's several careers
encompassed interests ranging from astronomy and teaching to photography
and writing. Schad was the author of 15 books, including a
college-level textbook for introductory physical science courses and the
top-selling Afoot & Afield series of hiking guidebooks that cover
nearly all of Southern California. Schad’s outdoor column,
“Roam-O-Rama,” was published weekly in the San Diego Reader 1993–2011, and his San Diego Reader
blog, “Outdoor San Diego,” kept San Diegans up-to-date on a variety of
natural events in the sky and on earth. In the months preceding his
death at age 61 from kidney cancer, Schad worked tirelessly and with
courageous joy and spirit to complete his last book 50 Best Short Hikes San Diego.
