This book, is in part, a plea for the preservation of the land. Accompanying the photographs are brief texts by the author that evoke the spirit of the place. The argument is implicit in the work, and all the more powerful for being understated. The photographs are beautiful to look at, expertly printed in duotone. The result is a work of art that is also a work of moral power.

What People are Saying About This
Fiori's photographs show us a place where we would want to be: open vistas, stream corridors, woodland rails...These essential features of the public environment can be protected as development occurs-or they can be destroyed. (Samuel M. Hamill, Jr., former executive director, Middlesex-Somerset-Mercer Regional Council)
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a striking, inspiring work. Highly recommended to anyone who appreciates farms, nature, and beautiful scenery! It's especially moving to see images from a renowned photographic artist who puts his money where his lens is: working to preserve NJ's intensely threatend farmland and open space.
