A wild paradise of woodlands, beaches, and tidal marshes off the Georgia coast, Ossabaw Island is a heritage preserve that will forever remain undeveloped. This volume brings together the photography of Jack Leigh, paintings by Alan Campbell, and essays by James Kilgo to capture its unique beauty.
Jack Leigh is the author of five highly acclaimed books of photography, including The Ogeechee (Georgia). Leigh lives in Savannah, Georgia. James Kilgo (1941-2002) wrote extensively about nature, the landscape, and our connections to them. Five of his books, including Colors of Africa, are available from the University of Georgia Press. Alan Campbell, who is based in Athens, Georgia, has served as a visiting artist on scientific expeditions with the National Science Foundation and the Organization for Tropical Studies. The authors' royalties from the sale of this book will go to the Ossabaw Island Foundation.
