This is a beautiful photography book of our natural lands. Barbara Kingsolver's passages in the book were perfect reflections of the photographs. What a celebration and reverence to be paid to creation! Unfortunately I can't remember the photographer's name, but she was wonderful. The soft style of the photos left me leafing through the pages over and over again. I checked this book out from the library, but I would be interested in having it to stay on my coffee table.
this book is full of beautiful pictures of was designed to show the reader of all that we have to lose due to our neglect of the earth.this is something we need to think of now before it is too late.
petty pictures, pretty sentiments. a coffee table book to impress your impressionables.
I didn't love the treatments applied to the photographs in this book.
Absolutely beautiful photos and text.
