Back to Nature
A History of Birmingham's Ruffner Mountain
Written by Mark Kelly, photography by Bob Farley, design by Melanie Colvin
In vivid prose, Mark Kelly relates the history of Ruffner Mountain—it’s missteps and setbacks—a story that, in may ways, mirrors the story of Birmingham. Giving this incredible narrative life are the photos of Bob Farley. Together they beautifully illustrate Ruffner Mountain Nature Coalition’s 40 years of existence and the mountain’s journey back to nature.
