I thoroughly enjoyed the black & white photographic works of Ansell Adams found in this book. Most of the photographs were reproduced from negatives of original Ansel Adams prints preserved by the national Archives, rather than from original negatives. The book visits the grand style of several USA national parks and reminds us of Ansel's enduring legacy as an artist. Pritzker reminds us that Adams sold over 1,000,000 copies of his books.
