9780253352767: Of Woods and Water: A Photographic Journey across Michigan (Quarry Books)

Celebrated photographers Ron Leonetti and Christopher Jordan explore the diversity of Michigan landscapes in their latest collection of photographs. Forests, prairies, savannas, wetlands, the shorelines of four Great Lakes, and the variety of terrain that crosses the Upper Peninsula are featured in more than 140 color images. Of Woods and Water conveys the natural allure and hidden treasures that exist in Michigan—scattered, isolated, and generally small in size, their protection and preservation are paramount. At present, these beautiful landscapes thrive, untouched by the urban sprawl that sweeps our country's land, but a greater awareness for and involvement in the preservation of our threatened natural communities are greatly needed. This shared love of nature and the unexpected gifts the state has to offer guided Leonetti and Jordan in producing a splendid body of work that captures the spirit of Michigan's untamed beauty.
