Chester County, Pennsylvania, is arguably one of the more historic and naturally beautiful places in the United States. This popular photographic treatment of the region has been updated with all new images of scenes such as the Devon Horse Show, the Kennett Square Mushroom Festival, and the Quaker settlement of Nantmeal. While much has changed since colonial days, when its abundant natural resources helped support a nation-to-be, visible reminders of past activities remain intermingled with elements of 21st-century progress and growth. Some of the reminders are simply names, ghosts of times past when travel was slow, crossroads mattered, and distances between activities necessarily were shorter than today. Others, such as buildings, farms, and ruins, are more visible. The 135 color photographs form a memorable journey through the countryside, artfully capturing bits and pieces of its history and giving glimpses of its present-day character.
