Many of you have read Kirsten's work on our website and, like the Gumbo Gurus, are fans of her great photography and thoughtful prose. Kirsten has written a number of nature-themed books and her latest was just released.
Here is a summary of the book from Kirsten's website:
In her latest book, Kirsten's photography celebrates Biscayne National Park as it is today for the Park's golden 50-year anniversary. This book captures in words and images the story of the Park from before its European discovery in the 1500s, to its designation as a national monument in 1968, to now. For the last 50 years the Park has protected the bulk of Biscayne Bay, its Caribbean-style limestone islands topped with tropical forest, its coral reefs, its wildlife, its remnants of a rich human history and its recreational opportunities that continue to attract half a million visitors a year.
South Florida's Biscayne Bay, its keys, the coral reef and the national park that protects them are celebrated in a new book, Biscayne National Park, featuring the photography of Kirsten Hines and historic images that together tell 300 years of Biscayne's story.
Kirsten's photography will be exhibited at Biscayne National Park's Dante Fascell Visitor Center Gallery from October 18, 2017 to January 14, 2018
Biscayne National Park was published September 25, 2017. Available from Arcadia Press ((888)-313-2665, email@example.com), Books and Books, at the Book Fair, and from the author.
