This book, a collaboration between Weston and the writer Charis Wilson, resulted from work done on Weston's Guggenheim Fellowship, the first ever given to a photographer. Wilson's text details their adventures on this two-year camping tour of the West, providing a fine accompaniment to Weston's photographs. A beautifully produced reissue of a true classic.
