About the Author

Author Ward Eldredge, curator for Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, presents here a collection of rare images from the park’s rich history, framing the astonishing visual beauty with the inspirational stories of those who fought to preserve it. The images tell a stirring tale of a natural place that nearly fell victim to commerce and industry. Eldredge, also the author of Arcadia’s Sequoia National Park (2008), truly brings Kings Canyon to life in this rich volume of early photographs.
