Overview

Photographer and pilot, Ron Lowery, uses his aerial artistry to capture the beauty and romance of the Tennessee River. Flying his unique open-cockpit plane, he has captured these stunning photographs, revealing the vibrant heartland of the South in all four seasons.

This book starts at the river's humble origins in the Appalachian Mountains near Knoxville and follows along the river's 652 mile, fickle journey south into Alabama then north to merge with the Ohio.

Lowery shows how the river and its watershed nourish the landscape and lives of people in seven states by providing everything from energy to entertainment. From his tree-top level photos of wildlife and waterfalls to altitudes above 10,000 feet for abstracts of canyons and clouds, he shows us perspectives few have ever seen.

With its embossed copper foil cover and 144 pages of maps, rich photos and enhanced with poetic narrative, this book is truly a treasure for the South as well as all of America to embrace.
