Fantastic displays of color and beauty abound in the wonderful panoramas of the San Juans-mountains which many call the most beautiful place on earth.
Along with wonderful landscapes and colorful images are portraits of a few resilient people who have come to live in this remote and rugged area of the Rockies. Listen to them tell of the experiences which have molded them and allowed them to live in concert with the mountains. These portraits are Cook's first published portraitures and vividly illustrate the effect the San Juans have on the people who inhabit them.
Photographed with an artist's eye, and artist's love and an artist's vast experience, Kathleen Norris Cook's Spirit of the San Juans is perhaps one of the most beautiful and most unforgettable books of photographs ever produced. This surely is a treasure to add to any collection.
