Synopsis

Ansel Adams by Krista West

At the young age of 14, Ansel Adams found his life's work. Growing up in San Francisco in the early 1900s, Adams traveled with his family to Yosemite National Park in 1916 and fell in love with the breathtaking scenery. After exploring the natural wonders of the park, Adams began to study the art of photography thereby influencing generations of people who would view his work. His striking images of the American West, including Yosemite's mountains, valleys, and waters, raised awareness of the natural beauty of America and the need to conserve and protect it. In this new volume, readers will explore the beautiful images of this photographer that encouraged a nation to cherish the natural wonders it possessed.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
