Many biographies began as a project to ?leave a few notes for the kids and grandkids.' Art Giberson takes this book far beyond that level. It is the story of a small town boy from the backwoods of West Virginia who grew up to become a renowned Navy photojournalist, newspaper editor and author.It is Americana in its purest form: young man with burning ambition, creativity, honesty and guts, rises to the top of his chosen profession. He can see a photograph in his mind, capture it on film, add words and turn it into a historic photo documentary. It is also a Navy story. I was told as a young Navy Midshipman that, ?Chief Petty Officers run the Navy. Admirals can order a certain course to sail and direct an attack on a particular target, but without good chiefs behind him to train and inspire the crew, nothing happens.' Art Giberson was one of those outstanding Chief Petty Officers, armed only with a camera he was willing to go in harm's way to record history as he observed it through the viewfinder of his camera.Not a shabby accomplishment for a barefoot, dirty faced kid from the hills of West Virginia. Cmdr. Tex Atkinson, USN (Ret.) Author of: From the CockpitGiberson, Art is the author of 'Through the Viewfinder', published 2006 under ISBN 9781934035122 and ISBN 1934035122.
