Such beautiful photography, such inspiration. I've enjoyed the series and never get tired of flipping through the pages, especially in winter when I'm snowbound. I'm also a longtime subscriber to their magazine. Definitely you'll get your moneys worth with this 400 page book. My family is heading for Hawaii in two weeks.
