About this title

Synopsis:

"Clyde's awe-inspiring photographs offer a window into many wondrous aspects of the river. . . . Clyde has immortalized another piece of Florida's natural and cultural heritage for generations to enjoy."--from the foreword by Governor Jeb Bush
"Clyde Butcher and the Apalachicola River are a perfect marriage. . . . In this book, Clyde's classic black and white photographs of natural Florida are joined with the mystical beauty of the Apalachicola."--from the introduction by Senator Bob Graham
Clyde Butcher's photographic journey along the Apalachicola and its tributaries captures a special, little-known part of Florida where much of the environment is still in its natural state. This hundred-mile waterway from the Georgia border to the Gulf of Mexico winds between steep bluffs, through rich cypress forests, and across grassy glades to provide the lifeblood for a vast expanse of undeveloped country.
Moving with an artist's eye through this landscape, Butcher documents the river's blackwater grandeur as well as the quiet beauty of individual locations--waterfalls, cypress-filled creeks, spreading wetlands, a striking array of rare plants, and the turbid, serpentine tributaries of one of the richest estuarine systems in the northern hemisphere. From uplands to Apalachicola Bay, Butcher's remarkable images share the beauties of a very special region with an uncertain future.
Apalachicola River--An American Treasure is the companion to a PBS documentary by Elam Stolzfus of Live Oak Productions.
Clyde Butcher was recently honored by the State of Florida with the highest award that can be given to a private citizen, the Artists Hall of Fame Award, for his photographic excellence. He also received the Conservation Colleague Award from The Nature Conservancy, the Sierra Club's Ansel Adams Conservation Award, and the Heartland Community Service Award from the State of Florida.

Book Description:

“I will hold the image of American and Cuban conservation scientists walking down a mountain road together in the gathering darkness as a symbol of hope that we can work together to conserve Cuba’s natural areas so that Clyde Butcher’s images of Cuba presented in this book will not simply be a melancholy record of what once was, but rather a celebration of what will always be.”—Robert L. Bendick, Jr., director, Southeast Division of The Nature Conservancy The United Nations declared the year 2002 as “The Year of the Mountains” and encouraged countries all over the world to have environmental conferences regarding the conservation of mountains. The Conference for the Caribbean and the Americas was held in Cuba, and Clyde Butcher was invited to photograph the mountains of Cuba for the conference. He spent three weeks photographing from the Sierra Maestra of the east coast to the mogote region of the west coast—rain forests, waterfalls, and cliffs that drop off into a perfect ocean. The beauty and majesty of Cuba’s natural landscape are captured in his intimate compositions, their focus on shape and light, the horizon and the sky.
