Give the gift of the National Parks with this beautiful coffee table book: the most complete photography book about all the 61 US National Parks, and the only one with location notes for each photograph. Winner of 6 national book awards.

QT Luong has updated and expanded his national parks

book by adding 24 more pages, 28 new locations, and revising all the

maps. Treasured Lands: A Photographic Odyssey Through America's National Parks

pays tribute to the millions of acres of protected wilderness

and historical heritage in all our country's 61 national parks,

including the two designated since the award-winning

first edition was published in 2016 and became an instant classic.




Luong,

who is featured in Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan's documentary The

National Parks: America's Best Idea
, is the most prolific

photographer working in the national parks and the only one to have

made large-format photographs in each of them. In an odyssey that

spanned more than a quarter century and 300 visits, Luong focused his

lenses on iconic landscapes and rarely seen remote views, presenting

his journey in this sumptuous array of more than 600 breathtaking

images.

Accompanying the collection of scenic masterpieces is a

guide that includes maps of each park, as well as extended captions

that detail where and how the photographs were made. Designed to

inspire visitors to connect with the parks and invite photographers to

re-create these landscapes, the guide also provides anecdotal

observations that give context to the pictures and convey the sheer

scope of Luong's extraordinary odyssey.

Including a foreword by

author and documentary filmmaker Dayton Duncan, Treasured Lands is a

rich visual tour of the U.S. National Parks and an invaluable guide

from a photographer who hiked-or paddled, dived, skied, snowshoed, and

climbed-each park, shooting in all kinds of terrain, in all seasons,

and at all times of day. QT Luong's timeless gallery of the nation's

most revered landscapes beckons to nature lovers, armchair travelers,

and photography enthusiasts alike, keeping America's natural wonders

within reach.
