Decades ago, photographer James Martin attended seminars in Yosemite led by Ansel Adams. Apparently, he learned his lessons well. This breathtaking full-color gift book presents the Sierra in all its luminous and monumental beauty. In artful essays as well as photographs, the author, who is also a veteran climber, shares nature's bounty with readers.
