Jim Harrison is well known for his distinctive paintings of landscapes and seascapes. Throughout his career, he has painted many rural scenes of small-town America, but he has never forgotten that it was his love for the southern coast that launched his career. This affection becomes truly evident in Pathways to a Southern Coast. Between the covers of this handsome volume you will find paintings and sketches of sand dunes, salt marshes, lighthouses, palmetto trees, and old fishing shacks�all done in the inimitable Harrison style. In his accompanying text, Jerry Blackwelder voices the beauty and nostalgia inherent in Harrison�s visions of the coast. Blackwelder chronicles coastal folklore and traditions as well as natural history and ecology. Taken together, the art and text serve as a memorable tour along the storied southern coast.
