Peregrine Smith, Layton, 1988. 184 pp., 77 color illustrations,, 10¾x11¾".
Glen Canyon, carved out by the Colorado River along the border of Utah and Arizona, was flooded in 1963 by the US Army Corps of Engineers to create Lake Powell. In this volume, Eliot Porter remembers the Canyon--and temporarily revives its beauty--through images made before it was irrevocably flooded. "The sheer beauty of what his camera has captured and the testimony of the text combine to nourish the kind of philosophy that can let such places endure. . .The text consists of an introduction by Porter and selections from many eminent writers about the canyon itself, about the strangely magnificent land it lies in, and about the meaning of wildness."--the publisher.
