Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cultural Writing. Nature. Art. Woodcuts by Tom Killion. Originally printed in a limited, handmade, letterpress edition, THE HIGH SIERRA OF CALIFORNIA is now available in an affordable, full-color paperback edition. Combining the dramatic and meticulous work of printmaker Tom Killion--accented by quotes from John Muir--and the journal writings of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gary Snyder, THE HIGH SIERRA OF CALIFORNIA is a tribute to the bold, jagged peaks that have inspired generations of naturalists, artists and writers. Using traditional woodcut techniques, Killion has created stunning visual images of the Sierra that focus on the backcountry above nine thousand feet, accessible only on foot. Accompanying these riveting images are the journals of Gary Snyder, chronicling more than forty years of foot travels through the High Sierra backcountry. "Athens and Rome, good-bye!" writes Snyder, as he takes us deep into the mountains on his daily journeys around Yosemite and beyond. 23 full-color woo
