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.
