This book was the first SRP book. The 2011 edition had a cover designed by Michael Morgulis, a Buffalo graphic artist. Over time, as the SRP catalog grew, the cover style was increasingly out of place (though very well made).
When Ruth decided on a second edition, she wanted a new cover.
So here we have a shot of Fall foliage precisely along Cazenovia Creek, which runs just below the trees.
I tried for a long time to give Ruth an overall cover based on the picture, but I couldn't find a way to place the text where it would be legible.
