An enjoyable coffee table book, easy to read text accompanying the real star of the show, the pictures. The text is such that it doesn't get in the way of enjoying the faces, and the book is short and quick to read. A few comments throughout the book of a personal nature by the photographer add to the sense of the wild, of being somewhere other than in the ordinary working world. This is the sort of book that reminds us gently what's really important in the world, and how close we are to losing it.
