Review quote

"These photographs will help you make sense of the great equation that is Ohio, where landscape, history, and eternal human hopes flourish between the great lake, the winding river, the rough plateau, and the wide horizon." -- From the introduction by John Fleischman, author of Mid-Century City: Cincinnati at the Apex "This volume of superb photography, captured by two talented artists, reflects not only the timeless natural beauty of Ohio, but also modern-day landscapes and urban scenes from the energetic, forward-looking state we are building today." -- From the foreword by Governor John R. Kasich "Flat-out gorgeous ... The uniformly excellent work of Adams and Schieber carry the book." "A fresh look at the history, energy, and geographic diversity of the place we call home."
