Review:

If a picture's worth 1,000 words, this book--with its hundreds of breathtaking photos of America's National Parks--is a well-stocked bookstore. Accompanied by the words of poet laureate Mark Strand, These Rare Lands is a perfect coffee-table book for anyone who has enjoyed the wonders of nature's wildest places. From a storm over Sequoia National Park in California to the otherworldly stalactites and stalagmites of New Mexico's Carlsbad Caverns and an Atlantic sunset in Maine's Acadia, this is a book that draws you back again and again. Photographer Stan Jorstad's obvious love of nature comes through in the thoughtful approach he takes to his life's work, contained in the pages of These Rare Lands.

From Library Journal:

Landscape photographer Jorstad traveled numerous times to each of this country's 54 national parks to capture the unique beauty found in each. Arranging the photos chronologically by the date each park was established lends an interesting perspective to this all-color collection of largely panoramic views; by focusing on unique angles and subject matter, Jorstad offers an alternative to more traditional tourist-vista collections. While the large-format photos convey the sense of space and grandeur found in the parks, some of the most striking images are the smaller-format close-ups of more mundane subjects that benefit from the scrutiny. Accompanied by text from former American Poet Laureate Strand and a brief foreword by actor Robert Redford, this top-notch work offers a most inviting glimpse of world-renowned scenery. Highly recommended for most public libraries and color photography/landscape collections.?Tim Markus, Evergreen State Coll. Lib., Olympia, Wash.
