    Visions of Lincoln is a stunning 272-page book with a little bit of something for everyone. It begins with a glowing profile of the city as it is today, which segues into 32-page photo essay by National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore. On professional assignment, Sartore has been around the world many times, yet he chooses to live in Lincoln. His essay delivers a powerful testament why. Jim McKee, a regular columnist for the Lincoln Journal Star, delivers a most interesting account of the history of the city and the communities that surround it, complete with scores of photographs. McKee, also the author of several other books, presents the story in an accessible manner and the book's designer has arranged the material in a manner that is easy on the eyes. Finally, local luminaries including Harvey Perlman, Kent Seacrest and Mary Pipher speculate on what the future may hold for the community.
