Featuring nearly 200 full-color images of the Texas Hill Country as seen through the eyes and lenses of 17 top wildlife photographers from throughout Europe, Mexico, Canada and the U.S, the first book in the Images for Conservation Pro-Tour series delivers one telling image after another. This rich collection of photographs, taken during the first-ever Pro-Tour contest, is guaranteed to generate enthusiasm from nature, art, or photography lovers on your list.
Liz Carpenter, former press secretary and chief-of-staff to Lady Bird Johnson, writes the book’s dedication in honor of the beloved First Lady and in tribute to her conservation-minded legacy. After years of working together, Carpenter and Lady Bird developed a warm and enduring friendship, which shines clearly through in Carpenter’s heartfelt dedication.
Images for Conservation: Book One – Texas Hill Country Edition also includes a short biography of each photographer and a brief history of the ranch upon which the photographs were taken during the 30 intense and dramatic days of the Pro-Tour of Nature Photography Contest. In addition, Texas Parks and Wildlife Executive Director, Bob Cook treats us to a hopeful forward titled, “Look Back and Looking Forward.”
