Pennsylvania’s Natural Beauty
THE wild beauty of Pennsylvania’s forests, falls and flowers stirs appreciative wonder. With more than four million acres of public lands set aside as parks, gamelands and forests, Pennsylvania still lives up to its original name, Penn’s Woods.
The 120 pages of Pennsylvania’s Natural Beauty take you on a statewide photographic journey of nature’s bounty. You will delight in the textures, shapes and colors of plants, rocks, wildlife and water throughout the four seasons. The text will shed factual light on your visual experience. You can gain serenity from the beauty of the natural settings in this coffee-table book.
Cool off in the shade enveloping a mixed hardwood forest. Step across blossom-strewn moss. Examine the pink-striped petals of the spring beauty. Observe woodland designs created by rocks, lichens and ferns. Savor a view of brilliant fall foliage. Follow the watchfulness of white-tailed deer. Trace the silky flow of falls through a hemlock glen. See ice sculptures on plants and snow mounds along streams.
Featuring 120 color photos, Pennsylvania’s Natural Beauty is a premier gallery by award-winning photographer Blair Seitz. Essays and extended captions by writer Ruth Hoover Seitz illuminate the state’s species-rich habitats.
