From Library Journal:

This coffee-table book details, in text and photographs, the history of one of America's oldest conservation groups. Founded in 1892, one of the Sierra Club's first efforts was to protect the recently created Yosemite National Park from lumbering and mining interests who sought to reduce its size. It has waged many similar battles in the years since, winning some and losing others. Nearly 300 photographs from some of the world's foremost nature photographers, including Ansel Adams and Philip Hyde, make this volume a remarkable chronicle of the environmental movement. To see only the photography, however, is to miss Turner's competent narrative, which recounts not only the successes but also the mistakes. This is an honest, enjoyable work, suitable for most collections.
