This is a beautiful book of stunning photographs. I bought it for my father, who grew up along the Snake river, for Christmas, and we were both so very impressed by the high quality, beauty, and comprehensive nature of the photographs. The book is heavy; heavy paper, fine quality. Couldn't recommend more for its artistry and quality. --LA Reader
The Gold Seal on the cover caught my attention! A well-deserved regional 2014 Gold Medal Independent Publishers' Book Award (the IPPYs) was given to Mr. Anderson, recognizing his perceptive eye and artistic compositions. "Snake River Discovered" is a visually stunning and awe-inspiring album. As an amateur photographer I appreciate the many hours of patience it took to capture the light in the unpredictable weather conditions of the wondrous Rocky Mountains and Snake River Plain. What a thrilling gift for residents in the vicinity of the Snake River ...from Yellowstone to the Columbia River! --Amateur Photographer
Snake River Discovered is an exquisite book describing the rich history of the Snake River. The photography is out of this world and makes me want to explore all the sections of the this gorgeous river that I haven't been on. Anderson has masterfully captured the Snake River on the ground, in the air, realistically and artistically. I'm a big fan of this book and gave it out as gifts for Christmas. If you are an avid lover of the outdoors, a fisherman, or love rivers... this book is a MUST for your library! --Cindee George Jackson Wyoming
