Reviews

The great naturalist E. O. Wilson, who grew up in Mobile, and the photographer Alex Harris evoke and explore that exceptional city and its surroundings... The upshot, revealed in this uncommonly effective marriage of photographs and text, is a place at once deeply southern and more than a bit foreign.
Excellent... Mr. Harris's photographs are inquisitive, and Mr. Wilson's prose is similarly vivid.--Dwight Garner
