8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on August 31, 1999
Format: Hardcover
A great book detailing a lot about natural history and presenting views seldom seen of the park. One minor complaint is that some of the spectacular features of the park look very tiny from the air and hard to pick out. Still, Cameron takes pictures of familiar sights from unfamiliar angles which are continuously refreshing. Gilliam's text is very informative (a dam above Nevada Falls?) and presents a lot of new insights on the park. Must have book for lovers of the Above... series and Yosemite-philes.

What can you say about a book on one of the most beautiful places on earth, I mean how can you make this place more spectacular...well this book does it. Mr. Cameron is such an amazing photographer, that he would make Ansel Adams take note. Not since the before mentioned Mr. Adams has Yosemite looked better. The park is photographed from every conceiveable arial angle; just spectacular. I highly recommend this book to anyone who appreciates great photography and mother nature at her best.
