Schatz presents 96 full-color photographs of this picturesque state. The images convey the area's beauty and moods, with landscapes large and small, as well as lively city scenes. Old-timers and newcomers will see Tennessee in original ways, as Schatz's photographs convey clear impressions of urban amenities, public attractions, and woodland scenes. Dramatic, vividly orange sky scenes of the sun dropping into the mountains are counterbalanced by pastel-colored sunrises and misty panoramas of tranquil streams and startlingly bright autumn foliage. The region's unique history provides a focal point throughout the book. Architecture, wildflowers, and the rich tapestry of lush vegetation and abundant waterways round out the offerings. Informative captions complement the photographs, providing enough detail that even casual readers who simply browse through the photos will learn about Tennessee's fascinating history and contemporary culture. Tennessee Impressions is a bright, inclusive, and affectionate tribute to the state. Visitors and locals alike will cherish this fine book of photography.
