  • Author: Dudley Edmondson
  • Softcover; 144 pages; full-color photos
  • Adventure Publications, Inc.; copyright 2006
  • Includes a special booklet giving you the opportunity to introduce the great outdoors to a young person

Dudley Edmondson, wildlife photographer, nature enthusiast and author, has traveled the country for years in search of wilderness experiences and photographs. He began asking himself a few questions: "Why am I not seeing many people of color in the parks?" "Where are the voices of African Americans when it comes to decisions about wild spaces?" "Shouldn't everyone care about the involvement of all Americans in these issues?"

He talked with policymakers, mountain climbers, park rangers, outdoor sports enthusiasts and career people. In these interviews, he gets at the heart of what drew these African Americans to nature, how they first became involved, why they value those experiences so much and why they believe people of color are nearly absent from this country's natural landscape.

These portraits are insightful, revealing and entertaining. Hopefully they will also provide a foundation for discussion about the future of our natural spaces.
