THEN AS I WENT CAME A PLACE THAT WAS STRANGE�
�TWAS A PLACE NOT DOWN ON THE MAP!

- Carl Sandburg

Despite Carl Sandburg�s lament that �no road is sure,� each of us must travel along our own life path. But too often, we lose sight of our true destination and find ourselves lost in the wilderness�trapped in an unfulfilling job, relationship, or life.

The Undiscovered Country is a simple and elegant photography book that offers inspiration for the soul. It matches the lush photographs of California-based photographer, Gary Hart, with a selection of classic American poetry that celebrates the need for a deep connection to ourselves and our place in the universe.

Hart�s unique photographic perspective leaps off the page in sparkling color and crisp detail. His images capture the grandeur, simplicity, and pure beauty of the untamed American landscape. The poems add a deeper dimension and help us to get lost in �a diamond of a morning� (Amy Lowell) . . .�the frolic architecture of snow� (Ralph Waldo Emerson) . . .�the hollow vastness of the sky� (William Carlos Williams).

Together, the images and the poems map out the arc of a day, a season, and a lifetime. The journey begins at dawn and wends through spring to dusk and into winter until the sun rises anew, and the �traveler� must return to the workaday world, spirit refreshed and renewed.

The Undiscovered Country offers a revitalizing retreat from the modern world. It won�t solve all your problems, but it may help put them in perspective. And if you happen to find yourself in a strange place �not down on the map,� remember that, as Walt Whitman joyfully noted, the reason you are here is that �the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.�

You don't often come across a book that combines beauty of image with beauty of language as well as this one does. A real keeper -- the perfect addition to anyone's coffee table, magazine rack, waiting room or what-not. Too pretty to keep on a shelf!
