A wonderful film. The best I've ever seen about the Park. A must see before a visit or after a visit. The final shots of Carl Sharsmith in the snow brought tears to my eyes.

A rare find: beauty, controversy, and literary history of California's YNP. Footage of the grandfather of the National Park Service, Dr. Carl Sharsmith, who, recently deceased, brought to thousands the magic of this park; Ranger Ferdinand's long history as kiosk suprvisor of Tuolumne entrance; and other great past and present personalities highlighting the wise approach to operating a NP. Fine excerpts of Lafayette Bunnell's diary of the meeting of Chief Tenaya with the first white men to discover Yosemite. Hosted by the Yosemite Association and Sundance Films. This is an important gem!

Visually appealing, very well-made and interesting documentary about Yosemite National Park, with strong historical background and discussion of the future of the park. The impact of 4 million visitors a year is examined. Robert Redford narrates and directs. One hour.

This is such a beautifully made documentary about humans' interaction with Yosemite. Dr. Carl Sharsmith's last scene is so very moving (he was my botany instructor at San Jose State University). Unfortunately, the VHS quality is poor because it is duped at extended-play speed. This documentary deserves DVD treatment. Robert Redford, are you listening? DVD!

The film is a visual encounter with Yosemite National Park in California as perceived from the present and the past. It is truly a trigger to start thinking about nature in a different way and why we created the concept of national parks.
What is nature? What is the purpose of a national park? Why are we drawn to the solace of nature? Is Yosemite really part of the wilderness? These are some of the questions addressed in this outstanding documentary. Words from the journals of the early explorers of the pristine valley are mixed with encounters with the "current" (1990) horde of visitors to the valley. The backdrop of stunning images of the park are mesmerizing as one's mind wonder about the place we call Yosemite. A wonderful thought provoking film about nature and national parks. Highly recommended! The film was made in the late 80s so the images are somewhat dated although the message is as relevant as it ever has been. Excellent!
