BLUE HIGHWAYS Revisited by Edgar I. Ailor

“For three decades, it has been our honor to publish William Least-Heat Moon’s Blue Highways. The Ailors’ Blue Highways Revisited is a spectacular companion piece to that American classic. Their photos are breathtaking, perfectly synchronized not just to Heat Moon’s American odyssey, but our deepest need to see the world anew. I’ve read Blue Highways a dozen times, and yet it is now, thanks to this beautiful, heartfelt volume, that I feel I’ve most closely connected with it. Blue Highways Revisited is a magnificent celebration-and worthy of magnificent celebration itself.”—Geoff Shandler, Editor in Chief, Little, Brown and Company

The Mississippi: A Visual Biography by Quinta Scott

Regularly $49.95 • Now $30 • 978-0-8262-1840-7 • hardcover • 200 color, 14 maps

Consider the Misi-zibi, the Great River: what natural forces took sixty thousand years to shape, we Americans molded to our needs in three hundred, damaging its wetlands, in some cases, beyond repair. Photographer Quinta Scott has documented the progression of the Mississippi River from its source at Lake Itasca to the Gulf of Mexico, with hundreds of stopping points along the way. In this remarkable volume-the only book to focus on the topography of the whole river and its floodplain-she blends images and text to weave a comprehensive view of the riparian landscape as a living organism and of the effects of human intervention on its natural processes.
