"A TRAIL FOR ALL SEASONS: Wisconsin's Ice Age Trail, in Words and Pictures" pairs photographs taken over the course of a full year with quotations and poems. The photographs of the Ice Age Trail, a National Scenic Trail located completely within the State of Wisconsin, are presented in chronological order according to the seasons: starting with Spring and continuing through Summer, Fall, and finally Winter, the changing nature and atmosphere of the trail are graphically depicted. Wisconsin's forests, streams, rivers, and wetlands are prominently featured in the images, along with some of its animals and insects. Quotes from philosophers and naturalists, as well as poems from both the old masters and modern poets are coupled with each photograph. Also included are three collages showing scenes photographed in each season.

    B. Clay Shannon's A TRAIL FOR ALL SEASONS: WISCONSIN'S ICE AGE TRAIL IN WORDS AND PICTURES should be on everyone's Christmas or birthday list for the next year or so. This is a stunning and lovingly designed book with fabulous photographs and memorable quotations from classic authors such as Shakespeare, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emily Dickinson, John Muir, George Washington Carver, Henry David Thoreau, Lao Tzu, Thomas Merton, Rachel Carson, Joseph Conrad, and many more. Some modern poets are also represented but not as many as one would have thought considering the scope of the book. Wisconsin's Tom Montag has several short poems, each adroitly matched with the photograph it represents. Each page is to be savored slowly and with appreciation for the wondrous variety exhibited in the photographs. Read this book and then get your hiking boots on and explore the Ice Age Trail for yourself!
