Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this bestselling autobiography, completed shortly before his death in 1984, Ansel Adams looks back at his legendary six-decade career as a conservationist, teacher, musician, and, above all, photographer. Written with characteristic warmth, vigor, and wit, this fascinating account brings to life the infectious enthusiasms, fervent battles, and bountiful friendships of a truly American original.

Synopsis:

This popularly priced edition of Adams' acclaimed 1985 autobiography preserves all the text but reproduces fewer photographs than the original. With characteristic warmth, vigor, and wit, America's most beloved photographer-environmentalist recalls his extraordinary six-decade career. A warm, discursive, and salty document.--The New Yorker.
