Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Ed Cooper's vision, photographic skill, and knowledge of our scenic resources are unsurpassed." —Fred Beckey, mountaineering author and unofficial world-record holder for first ascents "Cooper's mountain photos are so sharp you can almost feel the granite and the crunch of snow under your crampons."—Karen Sykes, Seattle Post-Intelligencer "It won't be hard to immerse yourself in the beauty of the celebrated park with the stunning photographs found in Cooper's collection." —Sierra magazine "This remarkable pictorial travelogue is the next best thing to actually being in the park.... In fact, all of the views in this collection are breathtaking and prove, once again, that Cooper is one of our most gifted contemporary photographers." —Tucson Citizen
