Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

In photographer Palmer's previous book, Rivers of America, his chief creative and technical problem involved the capture of flowing water; now, his challenge concerns subjects very large and very still. Palmer travels the length and breadth of the United States (including Hawaii and Alaska) to gather his images of native trees and covers eight forest regions in all seasons, mostly in undisturbed areas like national parks or reserves. Palmer has a passion for the biggest, oldest specimens: redwoods, Douglas firs, yews, tulip trees, and oaks. How do you fit something so large into the frame? Palmer has some amazing solutions to the problem. Several of the best photos, not surprisingly for one who has spent so much time exploring and thinking about rivers, are those in riparian settings. The photographs, of course, are of primary interest in this book, but Palmer's text reveals a similar reverence for his subject. Palmer's goal of inspiring his readers "to go out and see these wondrous landscapes for themselves" is, without doubt, well met. In the finest tradition of the coffee-table genre, the photographs assembled here allow plenty of room for the eye to roam, making this a nice addition to collections where interest in nature photography is strong.
