Veiled behind dense drapes of Spanish moss, walls of wondrous Cyprus trees, and accessible only by boat, Manchac Swamp is a wilderness jewel hidden deep in the heart of Louisiana.Drawn to the swamp's mystery and eventually captivated by its peace, internationally acclaimed photographer Julia Sims has spent 15 years patiently penetrating its secrets. The result, stunningly captured on film, is this superb volume which showcases the many moods, flora, and fauna of this hidden world.Accompanied by an introduction which draws upon a number of interviews with some of the few local residents, affectionately known as "guardians of the swamp," this will become a must-have book for anyone with a love of nature and its hidden majesty.
