About this title


Now in paperback, this astounding visual memoir, featurin gnew notes on the 140 remarkable color photos, displays the range of skills and sensibilities of this accomplished artist. Here is the passion for exploration and physical challenge that drove a young auto mechanic to become one of the world's greatest outdoor photographers.

From Library Journal:

A rainbow spilling down from heaven to touch the Dalai Lama's mountaintop home. Sand dunes in central Asia that would dwarf a mountain. An icy peak so sheer it makes you dizzy, set off by a crescent moon. These are some of the remarkable images in Rowell's latest book. A regular contributor to National Geographic whose frequently exhibited works document his travels to the farthest corners of the world, Rowell has focused on such realms as Alaska and the mountain ranges of China and Tibet in his nine previous books. Here the focus is on Rowell: the incisive beauty of his best-known photographs, plus 100 works never before published, is immediately evident in this 20-year retrospective. A wonderful visual adventure that most libraries will want.
