If the picture is worth a thousand words, then Jerry Greer’s photos of the Southern Appalachians speak volumes. The nature photographer has spent years donating his images to conservancies and environmental organizations seeking protection for specific tracts of our forests. The Blue Ridge Ancient and Majestic is Greer’s seventh book of photos. The book consists of almost 200 pages of iconic images taken throughout the Southern Apps., including a wildfire on Buffalo Mountain, snow surrounding Linville Falls, and a dramatic sunset on Wilburn Ridge.

For 469 miles, the Blue Ridge Parkway follows the ridgeline of the Southern Appalachians, connecting Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina with Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park. Along that stretch of two-lane blacktop are countless trails and backroads -- some of which lead to ice-cold swimming holes.
