What was once Duke Power Company's private property is now open to the public. Author and photographer Thomas Wyche considered his intimate tours of these lands a little-bestowed privilege as the secrets and subtleties of these 21 natural places unfolded before his eyes. With the help of Duke officials, Wyche presents this mosaic not only through vivid photographic images but with the rich historic background of each place preserved for posterity. The lands captured in Mosaic represent the best example of environmental responsibility America has to offer. Now owned and operated by federal, state, and private conservation agencies, these beautiful natural places provide unlimited opportunities for outdoor recreation or quiet contemplation. From the preserves at the Jocassee Gorges Natural Area, west of Greenville, to the Mountain Island Experimental Forest northwest of Charlotte, beauty and conservation abound throughout the Carolinas, improving the quality of life for every citizen and creating an enduring legacy of careful conservation to be emulated by us all.
