Overview

Photographer and outdoor writer Stephen Gorman takes readers on an illustrated journey through eleven of the United States' most remarkable wilderness destinations. Covering this vast country literally from coast to coast and beyond, Gorman has painstakingly compiled a stunning visual travelogue that showcases the American outback in all its extremes: from Florida's ten-thousand islands, California's Death Valley, and Hawaii's Midway Atoll to Prince William Sound in Alaska, the Boundary Waters in Minnesota, and Montana's Missouri Breaks. With unsurpassed color photography, historical maps, and rich, detailed descriptions, Wild America resonates with history, invoking the experiences of the earliest explorers of these harsh, unspoiled landscapes. Simultaneously, Gorman's images and words, accompanied by an appendix with practical travel information on each locale, invite the reader to rediscover the American wilderness for themselves. Gorman's engaging text and photography is eloquently introduced by fellow outdoor writer and New York Times Book Review contributor David Quammen, who thoughtfully examines America's renewed rapport with nature at the turn of the millennium. Americans are awakening as never before both to the fragility and to the awesome power of this country's diverse wilderness landscapes--as is borne out by the wild popularity of books, films, and television programs that cover outdoor adventure and natural phenomena. Wild America offers readers a considered, reverent salute to America's immeasurably valuable natural heritage. Stephen Gorman writes and provides photographs regularly for Outside, Men's Journal, Audobon, Wildlife Conservation, Backpacker, Skiing, andthe Discovery Channel Online, and is a contributing editior at Sports Afield.
