This album contains photographs of Kentucky and Tennessee forests, many of which appeared in her published work. Also included are some photographs of individuals and groups, and a series of photographs of forests taken by Ralph W. Chaney in 1940. Most of the photographs are of virgin forests that have since been destroyed by lumbering and mining.
