The Buffalo News: “David Reade has outdone himself with his newest book about the Niagara Frontier. Reade is not only a professional photographer but a fine writer: his essays nicely compliment the more than 130 pictures that make up this excellent and remarkably inexpensive book.”
Niagara Falls Gazette: “David Lawrence Reade’s “Western New York Wild” is the surest cure for cabin fever you can get without a prescription. It’s probably about two-thirds pictures, breathtakingly reproduced with an understandable emphasis on autumn, but his yarns are things of beauty with equal standing.
Rochester Democrat & Chronicle: “... you can pick up one of Reade’s inspirational, informative, keepsake-quality books that detail the natural wonders of our region. His latest, Western New York Wild, includes more than 130 of Reade’s best photographs, a natural history and geography overview, a collection of adventure stories and a detailed look at Reade’s favorite outdoor haunts he labels “Favorite Escapes.”
