Contraportada: Praise for Jack Leigh and his other books
Oystering, The Ogeechee and Nets & Doors
...elegiac black-and-white photographs...Mr. Leigh resembles (Lewis Hine)--not esthetically, but in his ability to depict manual labor and, indeed, the South itselfs, without either sentimentality or condescension.
Vivien Raynor, The New York Times
...lyric documentary depicting the oystermen of South Carolina's coastal wetlands...these solitary pictures do conjure up the mood of a hushed, misty morning on the creeks and rivers of the Carolinas.
American Photographer
In this handsome volumn, Leigh chronicles in words and images both an untamed river and a vanishing way of life. For two years, he traveled the Northeat Georgia river, talking to hunters, fishermen and moonshine makers. Their stories are as memorable as Leigh's duotones.
The Orlando Sentinel
...the book's sepia-tinted photographs and shared anecdotes form an affectionate and plain-spoken portrait of the vanishing lifestyle of the rural South...Leigh has captured a way of life on film that few outsiders will ever see. Boston Herald
As a photographer, Leigh brings to the book its unique quality of creating images that do more than illustrate the text. Many of the photographs can easily stand alone (and probably do) as artistic works. While his views of the river are solid and evocative of what it must feel like to be there, it is his pictures of the people that are the more compelling. Leight's vision honors the human spirit and the diginty earned from experience.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
