"Not just imaginative and creative, but also the dynamic energy that Charles puts into his powerful work, when he faces the elements of nature. It makes him a master of composition and light." --Paul Galschneider, Nantucket artist
"Fields' clear forte: capturing moments in the lives of both people and places. His photographs feel real, vibrant, pulsing with the life of the subjects rather than the ego of the photographer. The text underscores and narrates the photographs, lending a National-Geographic-like feel to the collections." --Jeannette de Beauvoir, author, "Seven Times to Leave"

Some of the photo captions are bizarre. One image reveals a man and a live horse inside a house. The caption says the man is a horse whisperer. But there's no mention why the horse is posing in the living room! After shipping this book half way around the world, I'm not happy to discover most of the text appears to have been copied word for word from web sites. There are six chapter introduction pages. All six have been written with material you can find online. Four of these chapter pages are identical to travel articles on Wikipedia. The book also relies on articles you can find on the UNESCO and cubainfo web sites. Many of the captions are also identical to material on Wikipedia. There is no mention of any of these sources in the book's credits. Overall, a very disappointing and uninspiring purchase.
