Synopsis: Yosemite is a world-famous destination that has attracted celebrated photographers such as Eadweard Muybridge, Edward Weston, and Ansel Adams, along with environmental organizations, rock climbers, and tourists. Yosemite in Time puts this park in a new light with re-photographs of some of the most enduring images taken at Yosemite, and three essays by noted cultural critic Rebecca Solnit. The photographs and essays reconsider the iconic status of Yosemite in America's conception of wilderness, examining how the place was appropriated by its early Euro-American visitors and showing how our conceptions of landscape have altered and how land has changed — or not — over time. Arresting and incisive, Yosemite in Time is an intimate reconsideration of a park that millions of people hold dear.

From Booklist: A place of dramatic natural beauty frozen in time in a pristine state in the photographs of Eadweard Muybridge and Ansel Adams, Yosemite is emblematic of the grandeur of the American West. But with its vast granite expanses, Yosemite is an open book recording the passage of geological time, and naturally it has changed since John Muir sang its praises. To discern how, and to more fully understand its powerful mythos, three visionaries join forces in this innovative inquiry. Rebecca Solnit, the author of five highly original books, including River of Shadows: Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West (2003), supplies the mind-expanding commentary, musing in her inimitable fashion on the nexus of nature, art, science, and everyday experience. Acclaimed photographers Mark Klett and Byron Wolfe practice the demanding art of "rephotography," attempting to take photographs from the same spot at the same time of year and day as Muybridge, Adams, and others, creating fascinating juxtapositions of then and now. Together they've created a symphony of image and word that celebrates what endures and what evolves. Donna Seaman
