Editorial Reviews

Review

"Archambeault's work, in words as well as images, is an invaluable a resource as is the land he records."―Chevy Chaser

"The historic and cultural significance of the landscapes, buildings, and sights of old Kentucky as many of them fall into neglect, become altered, or disappear is explained in this photographic elegy to the scenic treasures of Kentucky culture."―Forecast

"A time capsule of Kentucky's beauty."―Kentucky Monthly

"The celebrated photographer captures touchstones of Kentucky's past."―Knoxville News-Sentinel

"Why are Archambeault's photographs so popular? They are the way we envision our state when we're away from it"―Lexington Herald-Leader

"Many capture the sheer beauty of Kentucky's landscapes, while others poignantly capture images from a way of life that is fading from the scene, from mom-and-pop country stores to old signs on barns."―Modern Mountain Magazine

While I admire the effort to preserve photos of the old monuments/areas, and the photos were lovely, I just wish more had been taken in the spring or summer. Many seem to have been taken in the dreary winter.

I grew up in Kentucky and traveled as a nurse for 4 year. My last assignment was truly the best one and was in a state other than Kentucky. Although the company I worked for gave me a going away gift, I wanted to leave them with something that would connect us and they would be able to see pictures and learn something about where I was from. I chose this book and it was a solid gold hit! They loved it. The book is so bautiful and the pictures are breathtaking! Highly recommend this book and the photographer's work.

Format: Hardcover
This book is filled with outstanding photography from Kentucky, the beautiful Bluegrass state! You will find pictures of the famous landmarks in the area, as well as ones of more remote and hidden treasures you might otherwise never see! In fact, on page 49, you can see a good old-fashioned baptism in a creek, conducted by the church where I attend! This book is much less expensive here than on other online purchasing sites, as well! You will not be disappointed! Enjoy!
