Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

More than a few visitors to California's Sierra Nevada have blurted out, "It's so beautiful; it's like a Ansel Adams photo!" It was in honor of such sentiments that a bucolic, nearly quarter million-acre area was renamed the Ansel Adams Wilderness in 1984. In honor of the photographer and this awe-striking natural preserve, veteran photo artist Peter Essick offers this pictorial tribute, which is enhanced by passages by conservationists and naturalists. An inexpensive remembrance of an incomparable wilderness area.

From the Publisher
"Besides being beautiful, this book is instructive as well...For anyone who enjoys excellent black-and-white photography of wilderness areas, this book is a must have." —San Francisco Book Review

"In addition to the photographs, the book features insights from naturalists and conservationists. The piece is ultimately a visually stunning celebration of wilderness and its preservation." —Mother Nature Network
