Wherever one goes in the Southwest one encounters magic, strength, and beauty", wrote Ansel Adams. This magnificent book celebrates Adams' romance with the beguiling desert lands of Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah -- places that he returned to again and again from 1928 to 1968. More than 100 superbly reproduced photographs, including "Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico" and other celebrated images, give us Adams' powerful and evocative record of this unique region. Here are indelible photographs of our National Parks and Monuments -- the Grand Canyon, Zion, Death Valley, and Joshua Tree, among others -- as well as striking images of Navajo Mountain, Hopi Buttes, Taos Pueblo, saguaro cactus, gravestones, and other varied subjects.
Recently refurbished with a handsome new cover design, this stunning volume remains the ultimate gift for anyone who loves Ansel Adams and the American Southwest.
