“Every one of all ages can appreciate the sheer beauty of one of nature’s most delicate and breath-taking works of art, the waterfall. It wasn’t until I experienced these glorious masterpieces through the pages of “West Virginia Waterfalls: The New River Gorge” that I could truly appreciate the natural beauty of the Mountain State. The captions bring a vivid experience through the personal thoughts of the photographers as they make their way through the wilderness to the falls. I could feel their heart-pounding anticipation as they began shooting the photographs. This book captures the whole experience of visiting these falls without leaving home! I, for one, must dust off my hiking boots and get going!” –Karen G. Lilly, Gallery Director, Cynthia Bickey Art Gallery
“The New River Gorge is such a beautiful place that it is often said photos don’t do it justice. This photography certainly does. Ed Rehbein and Randy Sanger have successfully captured not only the beauty of these waterfalls, but the emotion and the majesty they impart. These two avid hikers have also provided all the information necessary should one want to experience any of these locations firsthand. Their book is a combination of breathtaking photography and informative yet succinct details. It belongs on the coffee tables of outdoor enthusiasts and fine art lovers everywhere.” –Audrey Stanton-Smith, Former Editor, West Virginia South Magazine
