The Korean War Veterans Memorial Story. Thirty-three years after the American men and women of the Korean War came home, Congress at last recognized their sacrifice and record of selfless service by building a Korean War Veterans Memorial. This book showcases this memorial and tells the story of this Forgotten War. Beautiful vivid color and historic black and white images and lively text capture both the memorial and the Korean War. Forgotten No More pays tribute to the men and women who answered the call to defend a country they never knew and a people they had never met. Award-winning writer Ted Landphair is the author of the book and many of the images are by nationally recognized photographer Carol M. Highsmith. There are 95 pages in this beautifully printed book that has sold thousands of copies since the Korean War Veterans Memorial opened in 2004.
Carol M. Highsmith, who was born in North Carolina and raised in Minnesota, has been called America's Photographer.
Here is why: The Carol M. Highsmith Collection at the Library of Congress is featured in the top six collections out of 15 million images in the Library's Prints & Photographs archive, alongside the work of Civil War master photographer Mathew Brady, Depression and Dust Bowl photojournalist Dorothea Lange, and pioneer female photographer Frances Benjamin Johnston.
In addition to commercial and architectural photography, Highsmith has completed the exclusive photography for more than 50 nationally distributed coffee-table books about U.S. cities, states, and regions, most published by an imprint of Random House Publishing. Random House has also published Highsmith books on Ireland, Ellis Island, barns, lighthouses, engineering marvels, and New York s World Trade Center. More than 1.5 million Carol M. Highsmith books have sold nationwide.
As president of Chelsea Publishing, Inc., Highsmith has published, and produced the photographs for, additional books: FORGOTTEN NO MORE about the Korean War Veterans Memorial; UNION STATION: A DECORATIVE HISTORY OF WASHINGTON'S GRAND TERMINAL ; DEEP IN THE HEART, a photographic profile of Houston, Texas; and a photographic coffee-table book in progress: CALIFORNIA , about her photo expedition through the Golden State.
Carol M. Highsmith s photography has also been the centerpiece of other important books on monumental Washington and historical renovations nationwide. In 2010, the Washington Post devoted a full front-page Style Section article to Highsmith and her career.
Highsmith has begun a multi-year project that involves photographing 21st Century America for the Library of Congress, picking up where Lange left off during the WPA project of the 1930s. Her work in Alabama over a two-year period and her current, eight-month California journey are the latest legs of that lifelong journey.
Each year, Highsmith is donating, copyright-free, more than 10,000 images from these expeditions to the Library of Congress.
Writer Carolyn Haines is the 2010 recipient of the Harper Lee Award for Distinguished writing. In 2009, she was honored by her birth state, Mississippi, with the Richard Wright Award for Literary Excellence. She is the editor of Delta Blues , an anthology of short fiction, and she has produced a series of mysteries, based in the Mississippi Delta, about a character named Sarah Booth Delaney. Haines teaches fiction writing at the University of South Alabama. She lives in Semmes, Alabama, with what she describes as "a passel of critters."
"I know many of my neighbors," Haines writes in this new ALABAMA book. "But even if I didn't, if I called them for help they'd come. And vice versa. The old code of rural communities is still part of everyday life here. We rely on and look out for each other not because we have to, but because it's the right thing to do."
This close-knit community spirit reflected in Haines's writing and Highsmith's photography throughout the captivating new ALABAMA hardback coffee-table book available for ordering here.
