Editorial Reviews

[Juras] presents us with compelling glimpses of what are called ‘remnant’ landscapes – landscapes filled with native flora and fauna that existed before humans settled the area. . . . Clearly, [he] has done more than just visit these places as a temporary guest. He has roamed their shadowy nooks and crannies, immersing himself in details of the native grasses and palmettos while taking in the grandeur of the blue skies over the Atlantic. - Melissa Tufts - Northeast Georgia Living
