Overview

Only a handful of photographers have succeeded in capturing the majestic landscapes of the American West. Now, Macduff Everton takes his place among them, with magnificent panoramic photographs that deserve to be viewed alongside those of Ansel Adams and Eliot Porter. Everton's lush, romantic pictures—each a cinematic tour-de-force of light and color—present breathtaking views of the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Yosemite, Crater Lake, Mount St. Helens, the Missouri Breaks, Big Sur, the Painted Desert, and other fabled vistas of the American West.

With lyrical commentaries and sketches by artist and writer Mary Heebner, and an introduction on the Western landscape's importance to American history and lore by best-selling author Edmund Morris, this glorious book is Everton's masterpiece.

Editorial Reviews

Andy Grundberg
Macduff Everton updates travel photography in the same way that Ansel Adams updated 19th-century photography of the West. He captures strange and eloquent moments in which time, and the world, seem to stand still.

Photographer Everton's color panoramic photographs present 140 degrees of the seemingly limitless Western horizon with its lush colors, dramatic topography, and above it all, the big sky. Informative commentaries by his wife (writer and artist Mary Heebner) accompany each photograph. Biographer Edmund Morris contributes a foreword on the place of the West in American culture and history. Oversize: 13.25x9.75<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
