Accompanied by excerpts of text culled from the accounts of early explorers, the author's exquisite photographs of America's magnificent natural places portray the natural landscape as seen by the first white explorers. Perhaps to give readers the opportunity to feel the confusion and awe of the explorers as they first glimpsed these astounding sights, the author does not identify any of the creatures or places in the photos. 9x12" Annotation copyright Book News, Inc.

Photographer Gerry Ellis captures wilderness images and settings which might have been viewed by the explorers of these areas, journeying westward and providing a panoramic view of the American wilderness. Blend in Kane's essays which capture exploration images and you have a fine and vivid portrait indeed. -- Midwest Book Review
