Overview


Jim Harrison is well known for his distinctive paintings of landscapes and seascapes. Throughout his career, he has painted many rural scenes of small-town America, but he has never forgotten that it was his love for the southern coast that launched his career. This affection becomes truly evident in Pathways to a Southern Coast. Between the covers of this handsome volume you will find paintings and sketches of sand dunes, salt marshes, lighthouses, palmetto trees, and old fishing shacks--all done in the inimitable Harrison style.

In his accompanying text, Jerry Blackwelder voices the beauty and nostalgia inherent in Harrison's visions of the coast. Blackwelder chronicles coastal folklore and traditions as well as natural history and ecology. Taken together, the art and text serve as a memorable tour along the storied southern coast.
