Under the Dark Sky : Life in the Thames River Basin, Hardback Book

Under the Dark Sky : Life in the Thames River Basin Hardback

Part of the Garnet Books series


Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Steven G. Smith showcases the picturesque Thames River basin, which extends from southern Massachusetts through Connecticut to the Long Island Sound.

The river and its watershed help define the borders of a valley that is unique among its East Coast neighbors, considered to be the last place where dark night sky can be viewed between Washington, D.C. and the Boston metro area. Locals like to call the area the "Quiet Corner" or the "Last Green Valley." In 1994, the U.S.

Congress designated parts of the area as a Natural Heritage Corridor because it is one of the last remaining stretches of green in the area and boasts some of the largest unbroken forests in southern New England.

This full-color documentary photo essay explores this Atlantic gem, through the faces of the people and the landscapes.

An excellent gift and an educational resource, the book includes a foreword by noted outdoor writer Steve Grant.
