From the Inside Flap: Renowned nature photographer Kathleen Norris Cook has come home. It is here in the beautiful and majestic San Juan Mountains of Colorado that her heart and soul reside. And the San Juans have finally found their champion - a photographer who can do justice to the awesome wonder and magic that are the San Juans.
In Spirit of the San Juans one of America's leading outdoor photographers, Kathleen Norris Cook, has taken treasured photographs of her beloved mountains and produced a volume so large and so breathtaking that it is the first true and accurate representation of the experience of actually being in the San Juans. Visitors to this glorious place find spectacular scenery, resplendent colors, vast wildlife and wonderful encounters. In this beautiful, full-color table-top book, Kathleen Norris Cook has collected treasured moments and presented lavish illustrations of the spectacular natural wonders which compromise the San Juans. Cook is a master in the subtleties of light and the art of composition. Her color images translate her visual experience to the reader in such a way that the visitors own adventures can be relived simply by viewing her photographs. 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.
