In the century since the establishment of the world's first national park at Yellowstone, no individual has rivaled Ansel Adams in his unceasing effort--through both his photographs and writings--to support the philosophical essence and practical evolution of the "national park idea". Here are his greatest images of more than 40 national parks and monuments. 78 duotones.

About the Author:

In a career that spanned more than five decades, Ansel Adams was at once America's foremost landscape photographer and one of its most ardent environmentalists. His work has been published in a multitude of books, posters, and calendars.

From Library Journal:

Illustrated primarily with familiar Adams images, many of which have appeared in one monograph after another, this volume doesn't offer any fundamentally new insights into the photographer's work. It does, however, remind us of his deep involvement with a number of national parks in addition to Yosemite. Beautiful duotone reproductions of the 78 photographs, an informative introduction, and selections from Adams's correspondence regarding national parks further enhance the book, whose smaller format (812 x 9) gives it a delicate, quietly thoughtful air. Given the care of the editing and the quality of reproduction, this paperback offers real value. Recommended for public and academic libraries as supplementary material on Adams, national parks, and conservation.
