Description
 
Traveling through the countryside of Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and Louisiana, Lewis draws links between the plants she loved as a child and the individuals she encounters as an adult. As she collects herbarium-style “specimens” of the varied plants of the area and weaves them into beautiful, miniature collages, a rich portrait of the South comes to life. Each lovely image is accompanied by evocative, humorous, and often touching prose. She dedicates each piece in her book to a different native plant, letting each reveal its time-steeped stories, history, and lore. Gathered together, they have the intricate feel of a botanical collection. “Lewis has created a lyrical tribute to the Southern landscape that charms and captivates.” Full-color illus.
