Award winning photography and lithography sets this "coffee table" book apart from others of its type.
"The book matches the scale of the subject. The noted photographer and the specialists on land and wildlife who wrote the text are old acquaintances of the region who have spent most of their careers there. The book is lavishly produced, with widely spaced lines, broad margins, and superior reproduction of the many beautiful color photographs."—Ralph Sayre, Idaho Yesterdays
"The three men who produced this book weren't just writing and photographing. They were exposing a love affair they've had with a mountain for many years. The final chapter boasts that you can stand atop the 9,670-foot mountain and look into five states. But the meaning is clear that while you are up there and looking at the five states you may also see all the way to the state of your soul."—W.L. Wasmann, Eugene Register-Guard Idaho Yesterdays
Steens Mountain pays tribute to the high desert country of southeastern Oregon. The well-written text and superb photography artfully combine to show the lovely scenery, animals, and people of this remote area.
