The publication date of this book, 1947, is the earliest so far in Covering Photography's collection. Though not as well-known as he would be in the 1960s and '70s, Ansel Adams was at the height of his creative powers in 1947, a date only four years after he made the image on this book's cover. For a book on the Sierras, a photograph by Adams was as logical and predictable choice as any, even at that time.
