Bill Booz Boosts Book

Franklin, NC's Franklin Press of 21 February 2008 has an article by Melanie Lebert titled "Booz shares images and tales of his journeys." Lebert profiles thru-hiker and author Bill Booz III and his new book Seasons and Colors of the Appalachian Mountains that features his photographs.

Booz thru-hiked in 1999 carrying a camera like many others. But then he kept going back, logging "four years of photographing, more than 50,000 miles on [his] vehicles, 450 miles on his hiking boots and shooting hundreds of rolls of film." Visiting particular locations, sometimes repeatedly until the light or leaves or some other element was just right, Booz captured some wonderful images.

The book is available at Books Unlimited and online at I've seen the book. Made me want to go hiking.
