|This book unites the imagery of photographer
William Neill with the insightful and thought-provoking words of Tim Palmer,
bringing new attention and focus to Yosemite's beauty, significance and
future. The book includes 70 stunning photographs, a two-part essay, and
informative photographic notes.
William Neill's photographs, from sweeping vistas
to intimate studies of natural phenomena, strongly convey Yosemite's exceptional
qualities. The collection is powerful, inspired from eighteen years of
Neills' residing in the park. Tim Palmer's essay is filled with a deep
appreciation for Yosemite and the benefits it offers the human spirit,
coupled with a passionate concern for its continued protection and health.
These moving images and eloquent
words provide convincing evidence that the preservation of Yosemite should
be the foremost goal in our relationship with this astonishing, but small,
piece of Earth. Only when that goal is met will we realize the promise
of wildness in Yosemite and in our world.
