Book Captures Beauty of Narragansett Bay
May 19, 2010
Formed by glaciers some 15,000 years ago, the 25-mile-long estuary known as Narragansett Bay serves as a playground, workplace and transit route for thousands of boaters, both commercial and recreational, and affects the lives of millions in unseen ways.
The relationship of the Bay and the people who play, work and live on or in its expansive watershed is exquisitely documented in the large-format book “Narragansett Bay”. Richard Benjamin’s stunning photos capture the remarkable beauty and diversity of these waters and the ways in which humans interact with this great natural resource, while insightful text written by longtime Narragansett Baykeeper John Torgan explains the history, geography and social and economic importance of the Bay and its tributaries.
