Rare glimpses of endangered landscapes and sacred sites rarely open to outsiders


The enchanted ancestral lands of America’s native tribes are under threat. Ancient traditions collide with modern realities, a stark reminder of the fragility of time and the importance of  preservation. Acclaimed photographer Lynn H. Butler has long been passionate about documenting America's sacred sites before they disappear. Now, with her new book Flames Against the Dark, Saving America’s Sacred Sites, Lynn turns her visionary camera lens on the magical tribal lands of America’s indigenous people. Flames Against the Dark features Lynn's poetic, hauntingly beautiful on-location photos, many taken while on horseback, as she travels from coast to coast across America on her mission to preserve the past, by camera. The book is a poignant homage to the Native American lifestyle and spiritual connection to our earth.
