This book brings new attention and focus to Yosemite's beauty, significance and future. William Neill's photographs, from sweeping vistas to intimate studies of natural phenomena, strongly convey Yosemite's exceptional qualities. The collection is powerful, inspired by eighteen years of Neill’s residence in the park. Tim Palmer's essay is filled with a deep appreciation for Yosemite and the benefits it offers the human spirit, coupled with a passionate concern for its continued protection and health. The book includes 70 stunning photographs, a two-part essay, and informative photographic notes.

From Library Journal:

Arriving shortly after Yosemite's centennial celebration, this work by Palmer (California's Threatened Environment: Restoring the Dream, Island Pr., 1993) is enhanced with large color photographs by Neill (By Nature's Design, LJ 12/93). A resident of the park since 1977, Neill brings to his photos an intimate familiarity with the subject, ranging from sweeping panoramas of the parklands to isolated close-ups that border on the abstract. Palmer's two essays focus on the unique nature of the landscape, the enormous pressures being placed upon this national treasure, and possible approaches for balancing resource preservation and visitor accommodation. A good companion to the National Geographic Society's Yosemite: An American Treasure (1990), this volume is recommended for all environmental and public collections.
