Apalachicola River by Clyde Butcher

Book Description

Clyde Butcher's photographic journey along the Apalachicola and its tributaries captures a special, little-known part of Florida where much of the environment is still in its natural state. This hundred-mile waterway from the Georgia border to the Gulf of Mexico winds between steep bluffs, through rich cypress forests, and across grassy glades to provide the lifeblood for a vast expanse of undeveloped country. Moving with an artist's eye through this landscape, Butcher documents the river's blackwater grandeur as well as the quiet beauty of individual locations - waterfalls, cypress-filled creeks, spreading wetlands, a striking array of rare plants, and the turbid, serpentine tributaries of one of the richest estuarine systems in the northern hemisphere. From uplands to Apalachicola Bay, Butcher's remarkable images share the beauties of a very special region. "Apalachicola River - An American Treasure" is the companion to a PBS documentary by Elam Stolzfus of Live Oak Productions.
