  • From the blues clubs of Beale Street to the horse farms of the lush Foothills Parkway in the Great Smoky Mountains, from the glittering Nashville skyline to the graceful historic mansions of Memphis, Tennessee is a land of vast geographical and cultural contrasts. Photographer Bob Schatz captures the beauty and the variety of the Volunteer State, from the funky Meditation Gardens at Graceland to the wild Ococee River in the Cherokee National Forest. Complemented with a thoughtful foreword by Tipper Gore.
