The Book You’ll Never Want to Set Down

In Books

Most of the nature photographers I know will say they love Ansel Adams’ work but everyone of them will say they took up nature photography after seeing the work of Galen Rowell.

Galen Rowell has always been one of my favorite photographers and it only takes a few minutes thumbing through one of his books to see why. But he was also a great writer and an adventurer pairing stories of far away and exotic place with his beautiful photographs. They’re more than a study of how he made a photograph many are tales of daring and adventure that will keep you engrossed from cover to cover as you read and then study every detail of his stunning photography.

Galen Rowell from the Sierra Club is a celebration of his love with the Sierra and Yosemite. It’s one of those books that’ll never make it to the coffee table and will instead garner a place on your desk where you can thumb through it every time the boss isn’t looking.

Whether you get it as a gift for someone or for yourself it’s guaranteed to inspire you and make you yearn for the high peaks of the Sierra.
