Ron LoweryWhether you kayak it, canoe it, swim it, fish it, ski it, hike it, or fly over it like Ron Lowery, the Tennessee River is a beautiful natural asset too often taken for granted by those closest to it. Lowery, Tennessee-based photographer and pilot, captures nature’s artistry in this fascinating coffee-table gift book, Tennessee River: Sparkling Gem of the South.

His amazing aerial photographs of the path of the river, its lakes and tributaries, and local the cityscapes and landscapes all pay tribute to this “sparkling gem of the South” in all four seasons. Lowery loves the chance to show others how the river looks from his unique view. With his own plane, he can virtually live in the sky and capture just the right time of day or special weather event.

With its embossed copper foiled cover and 144 pages of maps, rich photos and poetic narrative, Tennessee River will make an ideal gift for: nature and photography enthusiasts; boaters, paddlers, hikers and lake lovers; conservationists interested in preserving our natural resources; and southerners showing off the beauty of their part of the country.

The book is available online at www.ronlowery.com and at all major book retailers for $39.
