There are many beautiful photo books available and some correlate quotations with displays of Nature. Living Images and Golden Thoughts is such a book but additionally it goes beyond the normal by incorporating the combined efforts of a living well-known author (Carolyn Mary Kleefeld) with the photographic artistry of John C. Schneider to offer pleasing lessons from "Nature's classroom".
This is truly an inspiring and informative book that is certain to enhance your library, coffee table or electronic reader.
"Indeed, this organic symbiosis of image and word creates a resonance that evokes for the reader the invisible forces at work in this collaboration."—Patricia Holt, Publisher and Editor
