When John Muir coined the phrase Range of Light in the late 1800s, few people had seen images of the spectacular Sierra Nevada range. John Muir's writings and Ansel Adams' photographs provided the world a window into this magnificent landscape. Their artistry and activism helped bring attention to the environmental threats facing the Sierra Nevada. Due to the visionary actions of an earlier generation, many regions of the Sierra Nevada are now protected in National Parks and Wilderness Areas. In her second book, Elizabeth Carmel photographically explores the Range of Light in the 21st century and honors the important legacies of John Muir and Ansel Adams by highlighting 21st century environmental threats to the region. In addition to being a beautiful and unique collection of photography, this book also outlines the changes that will occur in the Sierra from global warming. Photographs in The Changing Range of Light are accompanied by easy to read text vignettes from the world's top scientists explaining how the landscapes shown will be affected by the warming climate. Inspiring quotes and poetry by renowned authors are also included and play an important role in making this book an uplifting celebration of natural beauty.
