" Great bio of America's most famous landscape photographer. " said.

" Amstel Adams led such an interesting life. The photos accompanying the story really make the book, obviously. " said.

" I liked it. A good intro to his life with nice big pictures. A primer to his autobiography. " said.

" Read by Constance. She appreciated his talent, sense of humor, and character. Constance also likes his pictures. She also liked the historical perspective covered in the book.It is written in clear language and is easy to follow his story. " said.

" Ansel Adams may have been a truly gifted artist, but like most of us, I suspect this life was not truly remarkable. This book only proves this hypothesis. If anyone is really interest if Ansel Adam’s life, he would be better served looking it up in Wikipedia. In truth, this book was a Christmas gift, and I somehow felt obligated to read it. Other than that, I most likely would not have picked it to read by myself. " said.

"This book reads, delightfully, as if the author is reading to you in a soft, melodious voice.

The photos are stunning, of course. Great to get, finally, the back story. Interesting that Ansel actually lived in Yosemite for a good portion of his life and that his passion for the place mirrored John Muir's though the two just miss meeting ( 14 year old Ansel's first visit to Yosemite is a year and a half after Muir's death.)

Also fascinating: that the Panama Pacific expedition--so stupendous in its time, so often forgotten in ours--basically served as Ansel's classroom when conventional schools could not handle him.
" said.

" I read this to help my daughter with her book report. It's a good little biography of Ansel Adams for upper grade school children. A fun read as an adult. I knew little about Ansel Adams and it was an interesting snapshot (haha) of his life. His photographs were generously sprinkled through the text as well. " said.

" Great bio of America's most famous landscape photographer. " said.
