Hosted by Writing In The Buff
Each week, Lisa from Writing in the Buff posts a new photo, which participants pretend is the cover of a fake book. We then write a 150-word blurb for the book. Like last week, I was once again inspired to write a non-fiction book.
In his popular guidebooks, Herbert Buford has tackled ponds, creeks and tree groves, but now America’s greatest guide to not-so-great landmarks continues with a look at the lesser falls of North America. We’ve all heard of Niagara Falls, but what about the Podunk Falls of Mesquite, Arizona? Or the beaver dam that created the Mini-Ha-Ha falls in Mexicali, Minnesota? With his homespun wit and exhaustive research, Herbert Buford has tirelessly documented the “wading” falls that dot Canada and the U.S. If falls are less than two feet high, Herbert was there to photograph and document them. What the falls lack in power and interest are more than made up for with charm and safety. No need to ride in a boat to feel the power of these falls; you can just walk right through them! If you’re a great fan of the lesser things that nature has to offer, this popular guidebook series is for you.
