In a career that spanned over six decades, Ansel Adams (1902-1984) was at once America's foremost landscape photographer and one of its most ardent environmentalists. A master photographer, teacher and naturalist, the profound impact of his work continues to expand as each generation discovers the magnificent, luminous beauty of his art.
Novelist and journalist Page Stegner is the author of six books, including Islands of the West: From Baja to vancouver and American Places, co-authored with his father, Wallace Stegner, and Eliot Porter.
