Wildflower lovers across Georgia know Hugh and Carol Nourse through their popular slide lectures. Countless other enthusiasts have seen their glorious wildflower photographs in books and magazines. Here the Nourses draw on years of travel around the state to share their favorite places for seeing wildflowers. Of the many walks the Nourses have taken, these are the ones they return to most often because of the density or the unusual nature of the floral display. All twenty of these wildflower walks are on public land; everything you need to know about how to find them and what to do once you're there is included. Five walks are presented from each of Georgia's four geographic regions: Cumberland Plateau/Ridge and Valley (northwestern Georgia); Blue Ridge (northeastern Georgia); Piedmont (Georgia foothills and fall line); and Coastal Plain (all of Georgia below the fall line). For each walk, a scenic photo gives a hint of the locale's overall character. In addition, five of the wildflowers encountered on the walk are profiled with a photograph and a detailed description. All of the wildflowers on these walks are native to Georgia. A few are rare and endangered. Common plant names are used in the main text; the index lists both common and scientific names. Coverage of each walk includes directions and a trail map plus information about: flowering season peak flowering period flower habitats walk length and difficulty restroom availability applicable fees

Alan M. Cvancara has nurtured a passion for wildflowers for more than 40 years. His early photographs of them were mostly records, but later evolved to artistic images. He likes to take wildflower novices on walks, immerse them in their floral subjects, and test them on identification until they learn in spite of themselves. Alan hopes that greater acquaintance with wildflowers will lead to their greater protection. Alan is a retired geology professor and the author of 11 nature books: Edible Wild Plants and Herbs, A Field Manual for the Amateur Geologist (two editions), Exploring Nature in Winter, Sleuthing Fossils, Bare Bones Geology, Sleuthing Fossils, Designs of Nature, Geological Glimpses, Showy Wildflowers of Casper and Muddy Mountains, Wyoming, and At the Water’s Edge. With his wife, Ella J. Cvancara, he has co-authored Back Trip: A Journey Into Perseverance, a chronicle of a chronic back pain victim, and Windows Into Legacy, a poetry-photography book. This book is an introduction to the diverse world of wildflowers. Twenty-seven close-up flower portraits reveal fascinating floral details. The photographs, with accompanying essays for each, allow you to gain insight into what makes a flower, its purpose, and further appreciation of nature’s beauty. And likened to the traits of a human, the photographic portraits and essays reveal a wildflower’s personality. Meaningful additions to this book include comments on wildflower therapy, wildflower quotations, and tips on creating artistic wildflower portraits.

With compassion and an unswerving regard for the truth, veteran journalist Mark Seal lays bare the deeply moving, inspirational story of Joan Root, a dedicated environmentalist and Oscar-nominated wildlife filmmaker. He covers her early days in Kenya as a shy young woman with an almost uncanny ability to connect to animals; her whirlwind courtship with the dashing Alan Root, their marriage, and the twenty years of nonstop adventure and passionate romance that followed, both in Africa and around the world; the shattering disintegration of the marriage and partnership; and Joan’s triumphant struggle to reinvent herself as the protector of her lakeshore community’s fragile ecosystem—a struggle that would lead to her tragic death in January 2006. Joan Root dreamed of a bright future for Kenya, a country blessed with unmatched beauty but scarred by decades of colonization and a culture of corruption. She spent her life fighting to make that dream a reality. Her life ended too soon, but “thanks to Seal’s meticulous re-creation, her extraordinary life lives on.” (People, four-star review)

Characterized by grandiose song-and-dance numbers featuring ornate geometric patterns and mimicked in many modern films, Busby BerkeleyÕs unique artistry is as recognizable and striking as ever. From his years on Broadway to the directorÕs chair, Berkeley is notorious for his inventiveness and signature style. Through sensational films like 42nd Street (1933), Gold Diggers of 1933 (1933), Footlight Parade (1933), and Dames (1934), Berkeley sought to distract audiences from the troubles of the Great Depression. Although his bold technique is familiar to millions of moviegoers, BerkeleyÕs life remains a mystery. Buzz: The Life and Art of Busby Berkeley is a telling portrait of the filmmaker who revolutionized the musical and changed the world of choreography. Berkeley pioneered many conventions still in use today, including the famous Òparade of facesÓ technique, which lends an identity to each anonymous performer in a close-up. Carefully arranging dancers in complex and beautiful formations, Berkeley captured perspectives never seen before. Jeffrey SpivakÕs meticulous research magnifies the career and personal life of this beloved filmmaker. Employing personal letters, interviews, studio memoranda, and BerkeleyÕs private memoirs, Spivak unveils the colorful life of one of cinemaÕs greatest artists.
