Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Few sights on Earth are more spectacular than the view from the parking lot at Yosemite National Park. There, spread before you, is a valley of incomparable beauty, a scene that is difficult to comprehend fully the geology, the waterfalls, and the mountains all combine to produce a picture of sublime tranquility. Perhaps it is heresy to state that a photographer has surpassed or even equaled Ansel Adams's stark black-and-white photographs of Yosemite, which have long been held up as the standard by which all other nature photos are judged, but in this beautiful pictorial guide, Wuerthner, himself a photographer and ecologist, certainly challenges the standard. Wuerthner goes beyond the typical tourist shots to present a panorama of Yosemite that only a gifted artist could capture. And while the photographs fully attest to the majesty as well as the fragility of this treasure, the text itself is also compelling. Wuerthner passionately argues against further development in or near the park, backing up his conservationist statements with an impressive knowledge of natural history. No matter how many books on Yosemite your library may already have, make room for this very special addition. Joseph L. Carlson, Allan Hancock Community Coll., CA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
