Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In 1938, 500 nature photography connoisseurs were lucky enough to obtain limit edition copies of Ansel Adams's Sierra Nevada: The John Muir Trail, a pictorial gathered as a tribute to Pete Starr, a young American mountaineer who had recently died in a wilderness accident. Many of these stunning photos have not been published since. Now this collection of 50 classic Ansel Adams landscape photographs is being issued in a handsome edition worthy of their quality. Exquisite reproductions; a magnificent rediscovery.

    A gift purchase

    This was a gift, so I can't speak for that person who received it. If she likes it as much I enjoy a book about Ansel Adams (plus his photos), she'll be amazed. The book showed beautiful photos and was of good construction, so I'm sure she'll enjoy it for a long time.
