As opposed to the common negative view of Appalachia, this book is an inspiring and deeply American story of enterprise and self-reliance in often desperate circumstances, and of the importance of community and faith, an oral history told by farmer and cabinet maker, Roy Anderson, age 80. The book was created by Diane Asséo Griliches, photographer and friend of Roy and his sister, Patsey, and her photographs beautifully enhance the text.

Since the eighth and ninth centuries, the visual arts have been the subject of much ecclesiastical discussion and contention. In particular, since the mid-1960s Protestant scholars and clergy have been paying more attention to the potential role of the visual arts in theology and liturgy of the Christian Church. As a result, numerous programs were begun under a variety of nomenclature, e.g., Religion and the Arts, Theology and the Arts, etc. These essays are a rich fare in interdisciplinary exploration of Christian art by art historians, theologians, and biblical scholars.

Ossabaw Island has meant many things to many people. For its earliest residents, Ossabaw was a bountiful place to live and gather yaupon holly. For relative latecomers it has been a source of live oak lumber, a series of brutal slave plantations, a winter retreat for northern industrialists, a cattle ranch, an artists' retreat, and Georgia's first Heritage Preserve. Despite the long history of a give-and-take relationship between humans and nature, Ossabaw now exudes a strong sense of untamed wildness that is part of its appeal to artists, scientists, and nature lovers alike. This book takes an interdisciplinary approach, combining photography and public history to delve into the island's layered human and natural past and present.
