From Library Journal
Illustrated primarily with familiar Adams images, many of which have appeared in one monograph after another, this volume doesn't offer any fundamentally new insights into the photographer's work. It does, however, remind us of his deep involvement with a number of national parks in addition to Yosemite. Beautiful duotone reproductions of the 78 photographs, an informative introduction, and selections from Adams's correspondence regarding national parks further enhance the book, whose smaller format (812 x 9) gives it a delicate, quietly thoughtful air. Given the care of the editing and the quality of reproduction, this paperback offers real value. Recommended for public and academic libraries as supplementary material on Adams, national parks, and conservation.- Raymond Bial, Parkland Coll. Lib., Champaign, Ill.
