Adams spent his life in California & his monumental photographs of the state’s most striking natural wonders – Yosemite & the Sierra Nevada – won him worldwide renown.

This volume collects the full range of his California images for the first time, focusing largely on his lesser-known work outside the Sierra. The 70 beautifully reproduced photos capture some of California’s most striking and exemplary vistas – San Francisco, the Golden Gate, Point Reyes, the North Coast, redwood forests, Mount Lassen, orchards in Santa Clara, Lake Tahoe, lettuce fields in the Salina Valley & the gold country, among many others. It is a personal & intimate view, full of Adams’ peerless landscapes but interspersed with glimpses of the state’s distinctive architecture & scattered portraits of its luminaries.

Accompanying these wonderful photographs are evocative poems, essays & passages about California from a wide range of notable writers, inc. Robert Louis Stevenson, Mark Twain, John Muir, Robinson Jeffers, John Steinbeck, John McPhee, Wallace Stegner & Joan Didion.
