In the centruy and more since the establishment of the world's first national parks at Yosemite and Yellowstone, no one individual has been a more ardent champion of the national park idea than master photographer Ansel Adams. Over a span of six decades, beginning in 1916, Adams photographed America's great national parks, making thousands of pictures - some of them among the most memorble images of the natural scene ever created. In this book a selection of Adam's legendary photographs of over forty national parks and momuments is presented, along with a sampling of his impassioned letters, speeches and writing - all long out of print or never before published -about the critical issues facing the park system. These insightful, and sometimes controversial, writings by one of the great environmental thinkers of the twentieth century are as relevant today as when they were written.
Our National Parks will encourage you to take a deeper look at your national parks and wha they mean to you, to the nation and to the world.
