From March 1 to April 3, 2014, Andra Watkins walked the Natchez Trace, all 444-miles. How does a person fill the time when walking alongside a highway fifteen miles a day for thirty-four days? To stave off boredom and deflect pain, she took pictures. Of highway and sky. Of garbage. Of spring flowers. Of migrating birds. Of trees and fields and signs.
Wheels grease the path for the traveller, blurring the details of a landscape. Honoring when Life moved at the speed of footsteps, she documented the minutiae of forgotten traces of Time. Whether one drives or cycles the Trace today, these images will ease a traveller into a deliberate pace.
This photographic collection is a gift from the Natchez Trace.

When I heard Andra was authoring another book I was so excited. I have followed Andra's writing for awhile and have enjoyed my journey with her, tremendously. I ordered the book immediately and when it came I ran my fingers over it. Well, I can tell you it did not disappoint. I enjoyed it cover to cover. I read her writings and touched each photograph. This book is beautiful not just because I followed her journey, but because the photographs that she took - tell a story also. She is such a descriptive writer, and she also has an eye for beauty. Her photographs are eye catching. Each photograph drew me in, her text and photographs kept me there. I waited to write this review because, unlike Andra, I'm not really well versed. All I can say is I highly recommend you reading all three of Andra's books. I wish I were more eloquent, but there you have it. You will not be disappointed if you give her writing a try.
