Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0964570424, Hardcover)

In this full-color, large-format book, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Robin Hood and writer Barry Parker, both natives of Tennessee, portray the state in its kaleidoscopic richness. Spanning the physical and emotional breadth of Tennessee, from rural to urban settings and intimate portraits to majestic perspectives, they reveal in pictures and essays the vitality and diversity of a singular land.

Conveying the spirit of the state with dramatic force are 100 full-color images. They focus on the character of the people in their natural settings (a worker in a cotton warehouse; a sculptor in his studio; a father and son in their general store) and signs of people within landscapes (a row of white rocking chairs facing a dream-like Smokies sunset). Spaced among the images are the essays, lyrically exploring the nature of the land and its people and taking you from the excited chant of the auctioneer to the sacred silence of the battlefield.

The result is a vivid work that evokes the pride, personality and heritage of Tennessee.
