Leland Payton has been leaving the 20th century behind, but taking a camera with him, and heading into the remote parts of the Ozarks for most of his life. Unlike most books on the region, The Beautiful and Enduring Ozarks combines both aspects the region is known for: its sublime natural beauty and its conservative folk culture. Payton finds something of value in each. There are mist-filled photographs of scenic valleys and pictures of some of the spring-fed rivers' scaly inhabitants. The people of the region are lovingly portrayed, but not idealized.

This photographic essay examines the two aspects the Ozark region is famous for: its sublime natural beauty and its conservative folk culture. Leland Payton finds something of value in each. There are mist-filled photographs of scenic valleys and pictures of the spring-fed rivers' scaly inhabitants.

Leland Payton’s photographs focus on wild rivers, back roads, villages .

Leland Payton’s photographs focus on wild rivers, back roads, villages, country churches, and farmers with sun-etched faces. Payton has an especially soft spot for local color, such as the hill-country characters made famous in the paintings of native Ozarker Thomas Hart Benton and whose descendants are still very much a part of the landscape. This quirky book is every bit as iconoclastic as the people and places Payton writes about and photographs.

Photo: Submitted photo). The book contains beautiful photos of the most urbanized river in the Ozarks. The river, the most urbanized in the Ozarks, meanders for 125 miles and joins the White River in Kimberling City. The James drains a 1,445-square-mile region. For purposes of the book, the Paytons include tributaries such as the Finley River and Jordan Creek when talking about the James and its watershed. Q: What stretch of the James do you consider most beautiful?

The Andrew Heiskell Braille and Talking Book Library, a branch of the New York Public Library system, is in the Flatiron district of Manhattan.

The Andrew Heiskell Braille and Talking Book Library, a branch of the New York Public Library system, is in the Flatiron district of Manhattan. It looks like another storefront, opening onto a sidewalk with overhead construction scaffolding, as with so many buildings in New York City these days. I have visited many, many public libraries around the . but I had never visited a braille library.

The America the Beautiful quarters (sometimes abbreviated ATB quarters) are a series of 25-cent pieces (quarters) issued by the United States Mint starting in 2010 and scheduled to continue until 2021. The obverse (front) of all the coins depicts George Washington in a modified version of the portrait used for the original 1932 Washington quarter

This photographic essay examines the two aspects the Ozark region is famous for: its sublime natural beauty and its conservative folk culture. Leland Payton finds something of value in each. There are mist-filled photographs of scenic valleys and pictures of the spring-fed rivers' scaly inhabitants. The people of the region are lovingly portrayed, but not idealized. Payton interweaves personal experience, extensive knowledge of local history, readings in frontier travel journals and natural history to create a fresh and original look at one of America's fabled regions.

I received this book as a Christmas present last year and read it in about an hour. I was pleased with the simple, organized information presented and the rich photography. The black and white photos give a sense of the Ozark Plateau's far-reaching history and beauty, while the color images detail a unique heritage that continues today. In general I enjoy the details afforded by black and white images and the vividness revealed by color photographs. My only criticism is that this book seems to rely heavily on contemporary black and white photos and a few washed-out pictures. This may have been deliberate to keep publishing prices down, but I feel the book may have benefited better had more (still, not all) of the photos been color.
In all, I appreciate the beautiful places and people represented in this book and believe it is an excellent introduction for anyone who hasn't viewed this rustic American region in person. For anyone seeking more detailed information about the history and present struggle of the Ozarks, in addition to details about popular vacationing spots in the region, I suggest A Living History of the Ozarks, by Phyllis Rossiter.

Anyone who loves the Ozarks will be touched and moved by Leland Payton's photographs, which capture the hills, plains, parks, towns and people of the place in all of their rugged, yet fragile beauty. Books of regional photography often feature dirt-dry text, but not this one! Mr. Payton's brief history of the Ozark landscape is fresh, easy to read and full of interesting ideas. As an added bonus, he has included images from antique postcards and tour books, not to mention photos of wonderful vintage hillbilly souvenirs! This book is almost as much fun to explore as the Ozarks themselves.

THE BEAUTIFUL AND ENDURING OZARKS not only looks like the Ozarks, it has the feel of it. I live there. Ozark rivers are photographed in their best light. The region's folklore is integrated into the text. Really high quality book and true to its title. Perhaps the best flavor of the Ozarks in book form I've seen.
