*Starred Review* Gr. 6-10. This beautiful book certainly has an advantage. It is illustrated by the works of Adams, the photographer who was able to capture the magnificence of nature on film. And the text keeps up with the pictures. Gherman provides a clear and insightful look into Adams' life, beginning with his childhood in San Francisco, following him as he becomes enamored with both photography and the piano, and detailing the long-range effects that growing up amid natural beauty had on him. Adams' life seems to have been free of any real crises, yet the narrative is never boring or dry. Readers being introduced to Adams' work for the first time will be awed by the photographs, and Adams' fans will appreciate both the numerous offerings and the book's handsome design. The volume's thick paper stock, an easy-to-read typeface, and high-quality reproduction make a fitting setting for Adams' works. Ilene Cooper
