Columbia: city of rivers, vistas, and dreams is the newest edition in Publishing Resources Group's series of books about cities focused on a future that is both prosperous and sustainable.
Written by the co-author of the series Reflections of South Carolina, Tom Poland, this intelligent, far-reaching exploration of the best that Columbia can be includes a photo-journal celebrating the area's physical beauty and its vibrant cityscape. But more than that, the book launches a new discussion into the community's commitment to be reckoned among the most attractive business destinations in the country and as the most desirable place to live in the southeast.
Poland's account celebrates the heroic individuals, corporations and institutions whose combined insight and actions are shaping the community's ongoing renaissance.
The book also features an introduction by Dr. Harris Pastides, President of the University of South Carolina. The University's deep commitment to making Columbia a better place to live and work is informed by Pastides' perspective on his adopted city.
