About this title

Synopsis:

North America's pristine, remote, and very much endangered lands as seen through the award-winning aerial photography of Jim Wark. The expanse of North America seems boundless, and its wild lands encompass some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Though timeless in their majesty, some areas are at risk of vanishing or changing forever, and Jim Wark's passion is to capture many of these beautiful regions before they are developed or environmentally impacted-and lost. From the lush coasts of the Great Lakes to the jagged peaks of the Rocky Mountains, from the deep crevasses of Utah's Canyonlands to the picturesque valleys of the Appalachians, this breathtaking volume captures these remote gems with glorious vistas and unique and detailed perspectives only available from the air. Piloting his high-wing bush plane for unobstructed camera work and unique low-level angles, Wark's artistic eye for detail makes this book an incomparable trip to the last North American wildernesses.

Review:

"You've seen plenty of pictures of the Rocky Mountains, the Great Plains, and Utah's Canyonlands, we trust. But you've rarely seen them this close up, this vivid, and captured by such a passionate eye." "O- The Oprah Magazine" "From a mountain peak or a canyon rim a wilderness traveler can start to appreciate the vastness of a wild landscape. But even those spectacular views are blocked by adjacent peaks or river bends. Jim Wark's outstanding and mind expanding aerial photographs of American wilderness give us a bird's eye view that few of us would ever behold without the assistance of his camera. In the process we can experience the artistry of large landscape geologic formations, glaciers, coastlines, unbroken forests, and watersheds that would be impossible for the human eye to ever capture or comprehend. He has added a new dimension to wilderness appreciation. The photos are well matched by Rod Nash's concise and lyrical essays that convey the history of how these landscapes came to be protected and the colorful characters who firmly planted the wilderness concept into the American tradition, thereby giving us all an enduring legacy of wildness." Michael Brune, Executive Director, Sierra Club "I'd like to think that we don't need an aerial photography book to help us appreciate nature and the last wild places in North America, but a new full-color book by photographer Jim Wark and essayist Roderick F. Nash might educate you on just how little you really recognize our wilderness... pretty much anything amazing you can imagine is represented: deserts, hoodoos, coasts, woodlands, tundras, prairies, wetlands, volcanoes, glaciers, dunes and the list goes on.... The essays by wilderness historian Robert Nash help us to see how we've gotten to this present day of limited wild places, and they shed light on the continuing struggle to keep our North American wilderness from vanishing for good. I hate to call Leave No Trace a coffee table book. It seems like
