"The Nature of Woman" by Deborah Lee Davis. This beautiful hardcover book of photography gives visual and poetic tribute to the spirit and earthiness of womankind. The author's choice of the deep and stirring subject matter, her keen eye for the subtleties of spirit revealing itself in every day moments, conveys her profound love and appreciation of humankind. Her selection of photos emerging from this appreciation of human beings and their plight is informed as well by the author's great respect for nature, animals, the mountains and the elements. This book celebrates woman, and womankind in general, in its beautiful choice of faces, stories, poetry and images. These photographs will speak for themselves, as they touch the reader in long forgotten places.
