Product description

For sixty years, Ansel Adams photographed among the great peaks of Yosemite National Park and the High Sierra range - the "range of light." Inspired by their grandeur, their wildness, and their primeval mystery, he made photographs that were to become the icons, the symbols, of America's national park ethic. During his lifetime Adams published seven books of images from this region; this new book brings together in a single volume the finest photographs from this vast body of work. His writings - alive with anecdote and insight - provide a backdrop for these stirring images, and John Szarkowski's introduction provides testimony to the enduring impact of Adams' Yosemite vision. Yosemite and the High Sierra represents Adams' legacy at its most distilled, and timeless.
