About the Author 
  
Hullihen Williams Moore's photographs, which have appeared in Blue Ridge Magazine and as a set of posters available at Shenandoah National Park, will be the subject of a traveling exhibition organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts beginning in the fall of 2003. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
The only collection of photographs devoted to one of America's natural treasures, Shenandoah: Views of Our National Park documents one man's decades-long fascination with this uniquely beautiful region in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains. Hullihen Williams Moore has been visiting Shenandoah National Park since the mid-1960s, but it was after studying with Ansel Adams in 1979 that he began seriously photographing it. Through fifty-one black and white duotone photographic prints, Moore reveals the quiet beauty of Shenandoah National Park. From grand vistas and waterfalls to the delicate unfurling of new ferns, these photographs capture the singular appeal that attracts 1.7 million visitors to the park each year.  
  
 
  
In two essays, Moore addresses the natural and human history of the park as well as his own personal experience of it, including the stories behind the individual images. The author has also included a helpful appendix of technical details regarding the photographs. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
