Item Description...
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.

A Must-Have Book for your Library  Feb 2, 2000
A beautifully written, heartbreakingly photographed book that will haunt your dreams. The majesty of the swamp and the dignity of the people will move you to tears. Julia Sims is an amazing photographer with an eagle's eye and a full heart. Manchac swamp and it's people won't easily be forgotten by anyone who opens this book. It is the book, that once given, the giver gives it to another, who gives it to another...and so on. You want to pass it on.

A most beautiful remembrance of home!  Jan 20, 2000
My husband and I are natives of the area Julia Sims photographs! We've been gone 34 years! This book lets us relive the beautiful wilderness we grew up in and also to hopefully, preserve it! We have never seen such gorgeous photographs of the Manchac Swamp, except maybe in her gallery in Ponchatoula, LA. ANY nature lover will enjoy this book, even if not from LA!
Manchac Swamp: A treasure captured for all  Sep 1, 1998
As a first time viewer of wildlife/landscape photography, I expected this book to be little more than a book of pretty pictures. However, Julia Sims managed, with vertiginous purity, to bring the swamps of Louisiana to my very living room over a thousand miles away. Her lyrical use of brilliant colors and vivid backdrops enabled me, and many others with whom I have shared this book, to feel the majestic and natural beauty of Manchac Swamp. Nearly ever picture tells a story that enables the reader to feel a part of this American treasure. Mr. Kemp's ability to illuminate the personalities of those who call the swamp home is equally impressive. These "guardians of the swamp" have coexisted beautifully for decades with this as their wallpaper and any reader of this book will understand their fortune for having been able to do so. This is more than just a coffee table book to be shared during polite conversation; these 144 pages are a visual love letter to the flora, fauna and wildlife of a dying swamp. Ms. Sims and Mr. Kemp will be thanked for many years to come. Manchac Swamp: Louisiana's Undiscovered Wilderness is a true work of art and a source of inspiration.
