This volume presents 109 plates that capture the magic, strength and beauty of the Southwest along with an essay on the land by Lawrence Clark Powell.
In the century and more since the establishment of the world's first national parks at Yosemite and Yellowstone, no one individual has been a more ardent champion of the "national park idea" than master photographer Ansel Adams.
This book is a selection of Adams' legendary photographs of over forty national parks and monuments is presented, along with a sampling of his impassioned letters, speeches, and writing--all long out of print and some never before published--about the critical issues facing the park system.
