Publisher's Description
Originally published in 1938 and limited to only 500 copies, Sierra Nevada: The John Muir Trail is a stunningly beautiful collection of Ansel Adams' photographs of the Sierra -- made early in his legendary career.

A rare jewel has been discovered in the oeuvre of Ansel Adams. Known to only a few avid book collectors and museums, Sierra Nevada: The John Muir Trail is an extraordinary publication in many respects. Adams, at the age of 36, was commissioned to prepare a book of his photographs taken along the world-famous John Muir Trail as a tribute to Pete Starr, a young American mountaineer (and son of a Sierra Club president) killed in a climbing accident. Composed of 50 photographs of the Sierra Nevada -- many never published again -- the book is an exquisite portrait of the mountain world of the High Sierra in California. When first published, it set a new standard for fine photographic reproduction in book form. Little, Brown takes great pride in announcing a new edition of this magnificent book.
