The delta formed by the Alabama and Tensaw rivers at the head of Mobile Bay is one of the nation's most unique and valuable ecosystems. The area has rich history, diverse plant and animal life, great beauty, and is threatened by industry and development. Alabama poet laureate Sue Walker set out to capture the Delta in words, which are accompanied by the lush color photographs of internationally acclaimed wildlife photographer and documentarian Dennis Holt. The book includes history, science, poetry, and interviews with people who live in the Delta as well as those who are trying to save it. The book is a medium-sized coffee-table format.
