“From a mountain peak or a canyon rim a wilderness traveler can start to appreciate the vastness of a wild landscape. But even those spectacular views are blocked by adjacent peaks or river bends. Jim Wark’s outstanding and mind expanding aerial photographs of American wilderness give us a bird’s eye view that few of us would ever behold without the assistance of his camera. In the process we can experience the artistry of large landscape geologic formations, glaciers, coastlines, unbroken forests, and watersheds that would be impossible for the human eye to ever capture or comprehend. He has added a new dimension to wilderness appreciation. The photos are well matched by Rod Nash’s concise and lyrical essays that convey the history of how these landscapes came to be protected and the colorful characters who firmly planted the wilderness concept into the American tradition, thereby giving us all an enduring legacy of wildness.” ~Michael Brune, Executive Director, Sierra Club
